November 2017 Food Distribution

November 2017 Food Distribution - California Valley Miwok Tribe

On Tuesday, November 21, 2017, The California Valley Miwok Tribe held its monthly USDA Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR).

Many of our participants openly expressed their gratitude for the allotments of food given out by the USDA Food program, especially being that it was received a couple days before this month’s holiday. With many families still struggling to put nutritious food on their table, having foods that can be stretched to last throughout the month brings a smile to many of our recipients.

Every day there are families who worry about how they are going to feed their children, but for the recipients whom are eligible to participate in the USDA Food Program on Indian Reservations, there is an overwhelmingly heartfelt gratitude displayed for the food program. Some have said that receiving this food is the difference between having a happy holiday and making it through the month, or having to go without.

Anyone wishing to request a USDA Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) application can contact the California Valley Miwok Tribe via email at or by telephone at (209) 931-4567 to have a FDPIR application mailed to you.

The California Valley Miwok Tribe sincerely thanks the Tule River Reservation (USDA Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations), Mr. Richard McDarment, USDA FDPIR Director, Mrs. Patricia Salas, USDA FDPIR Intake Manager, Mr. Jesus Salas, USDA FDPIR Staff and Mr. Ronald Buckman, USDA FDPIR Staff & driver. Thank you all for your unwavering dedication for the continued success of this food program and for addressing the nutritional needs of the Native American community.
