Q. What kinds of information can I post to the Listserv?



A. The purpose of the FDPIR NutritionTalk Listserv is to promote open communication and exchange of information between tribal communities, USDA, and other agencies and organizations that provide nutrition education, materials, resources, or health-related services to participants in the FDPIR.

It is meant to foster positive food and health behaviors among FDPIR participants by getting those who work with
them to share experiences, ideas, resources and materials, innovative strategies, and information about food,
nutrition, and health topics applicable to Native Americans. You can:

  • Pose specific questions about various nutrition/health and food safety concerns.
  • Share information or request information about successful nutrition education programs and materials you have used or heard about.
  • Post announcements of academic and other employment opportunities or opportunities to apply for nutrition education grant funding.
  • Mention useful Web sites or publications that might be of interest to other listserv members without flooding the listserv with lots of advertising.
  • Submit comments or questions about the FDPIR food package.

Try to keep all postings as brief as possible. Instead of sending long documents to the listserv, describe the document and either give instructions for accessing it, or offer to send it to those who are interested in receiving it.

Please note that the listserv does not accept attachments.

FDPIR NutritionTalk is not an appropriate means of advertising or promoting specific products. Listserv members may not advertise a product/service from which they stand to have a financial gain. Persons advertising on FDPIR NutritionTalk will be removed immediately from the listserv.
