Farm-to-school efforts, which are implemented across North America, represent one approach to reconnect adolescents with their traditional food system and thereby promote cultural connectivity and food security. Farm-to-school programs are designed to connect school children with local agriculture by integrating locally grown foods into school cafeterias and through curricular activities to improve diet quality among children and support local food economies . In recent years, AIAN communities have begun incorporating indigenous foods into their school meals programs and teaching their youth about their traditional food cultures . The U.S. Department of Agriculture encourages Native communities to serve traditional foods and, in 2015, provided guidance on how traditional foods (e.g., sheep, wild rice) can be served as part of a reimbursable meal . To date, no study published in the peer-reviewed literature has examined the impact of farm-to-school programs in Indigenous communities.

Nonetheless, even in urban areas there is still a value placed on traditional foods and they are viewed as an essential connection to and representation of the traditional culture and central to the health and food security of Alaska Native people.

Despite the proven effectiveness of LARCs, however, most adolescents use short-acting hormonal contraceptives  which have a typical use failure rate between 6% and 9% .
