A great resource for this would be Gary Nabhan and/or his book
Coming Home to Eat: The Pleasures and Politics of Local Foods,
2002, ISBN 0393323749.
He is involved with a group of Native Americans who
are researching and rediscovering that eating
traditional local foods and exercising are reducing
the incidence of diabetes. This is only a portion of
the book, but from what I could pick out of the narative
they seem to be using garden foods, wild gathered foods,
and in-the-process-of-being-domesticated wild foods.
He has probably presented some academic papers on this
as well, so you might do a lit search for those.
Gary also talks quite a bit about his year of eating
90% regional and predominately whole foods -- grown, fished, or gathered
within 250 miles of his Arizona home.
Might be a fun challenge to work toward too with your community
