The Tribe's Food Distribution Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and provides commodity foods to federally recognized tribal families in a 15-county service area whose household incomes are at or below the federal poverty level. Families can opt to receive commodity foods instead of food stamps but cannot receive both in the same month. The Program offers a variety of packaged, canned, refrigerated, frozen and fresh foods
