Social Services

There is the most awesome restaurant in Denver, Colorado, called Tocabe. Their recipes are made up of traditional foods from their tribal background, with a modern flair. They have partnered with USDA and mid-west Tribes, to show people how to use their commodities in a healthy way. Since USDA has added the blue cornmeal to our food package and many of the people from our area don't know how to use it, I contacted them and asked if they had a recipe using the product. They shared this with me and I can't wait to try it. When I do get a chance to try it, I am going to substitute the fruit & nut mix that is in our food package for the chopped pecans and toasted pine nuts that their recipe calls for.

Blue Corn Mush Recipe

Bring 4 cups water to a boil, just before water boils, slowly whisk in 1 cup Ute Mountain Bow & Arrow brand blue corn meal. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook to desired texture, whisking constantly. Stir in 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 2 tablespoons Red Lake Nation organic maple syrup. If available add 1/2 teaspoon fine cedar ash as water is coming to a boil to increase blue vibrancy and give a nice hint of smoke. Serve with chopped pecans and toasted pine nuts and add your favorite fruit to complete your nutritious meal. 

* Indicates commodity foods used

If you or someone you know would like to get signed up to receive commodity foods, you can print the entire APPLICATION PACKET off this website. If you do not have a printer, contact the Siletz office and we can send you the packet. Once completed, mail it to:

P.O. Box 549
Siletz, OR 97380

If you are a certified client and have received an appointment slip for the next month, we request that if you cannot make it to your scheduled appointment, give us a call and we will try to reschedule you. If you have indicated on your application an AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE, they can pick your food up for you, or, if you show up before or after your scheduled time, we serve our scheduled clients first so you may have to wait.

If you are a walk-in, in order to serve you more quickly, please have all the documentation necessary to get you certified.
