Food Distribution

The Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations is a program of the Food and Nutrition Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. This program provides foods for good health to households living on Indian reservations. Indians living off the reservation in the service area may also be eligible provided they live in a town with the population of less than 10,000. You may qualify to receive these foods if you are low-income. NOTE: Persons receiving CalFresh (food stamps) are not eligible for the program.

Once a month you will receive a variety of foods designed to help you maintain a healthy diet. You will also receive information about nutrition education, recipes and physical exercise.

Applications are available at our office and on-line. Complete the application and return it to the office and arrange for an interview with the Certifier.

  • Income – Your eligibility is based on your net income, such as earnings and unearned income (TANF, pensions, Social Security benefits, etc) after allowable deductions.
  • Deductions – Dependent care, medical expenses in excess of $35 with qualifying person, shelter and utility standard deduction and court ordered child support.
