This is Cultural Competence


We provide resources that are designed for Nutrition Assistance Program Staff/ Assistants working with clients from the U.S. affiliated Pacific Islands. These are intended to provide them with the tools necessary for improving access to the clients and more effective program delivery.


You are invited to review the materials by island or by subject matter (language, culture, food etc.). Eventually we hope to be able to offer this as an online training course that can be completed as self-study.
