Hasbídító is a community derived and managed development group that has been working across three chapters of the eastern Navajo Nation: Counselor, Ojo Encino, Torreon. Hasbídító’s board consists entirely of Navajo people who live in these communities and are representative of the communities’ demographics. Community members have identified food related issues as being a high priority.
Specific issues are food security, food quality and health, food economics, environmental restoration, and cultural maintenance. Hasbídító has been conscientiously trying to restore the food shed that had once existed in the area as a means to increase healthfulness, increase local economic activity, increase access to healthy/nutritious food, and as a way to maintain important environmental and cultural facets that have been part of Navajo culture
