Staff dining in SHA facilities last weekend may have noticed a delicious change-up in their usual culinary choices.
Sunday, June 21 was National Indigenous Peoples Day. The day celebrates the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people.
To commemorate the occasion, SHA facilities planned special menus and food offerings unique to each community, said Moe Mathieu, Director of Nutrition and Food Services.
This included Three Sisters Stew, a vegetarian dish containing corn, squash and beans—all important to the First Nations cultures across North America. Other sites offered dishes such as bison stew, and elk and bison burgers. Other sites featured varieties of fish that are significant to the peoples from those areas.
To celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day, SHA food outlets offered traditional menu items, such as walleye, a northern Saskatchewan fish, with a blend of wild and white rice.
