The California Valley Miwok Tribe (located at 4620 Shippee Ln, Stockton, California) held its monthly USDA Food Distribution on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015.

The USDA Food Distribution program has helped many people during the years that it has run after its enactment by the Tribe. The success of this program can only be measured by those whom benefit from its availability, with so many now pursuing a better lot in life or having moved away, the tribe asks that anyone whom is in need and believes themselves eligible to participate in the program, to contact the tribal offices to find how you may be able to acquire this monthly service and help the tribe in strengthening the lives of the local Native American community.

For more information regarding the monthly USDA Food Distribution on Indian Reservations (FDIRP) program, you may contact the Tribal Office at (209) 931-4567 or via email at office@californiavalleymiwoktribe-nsn.gov.

The California Valley Miwok Tribe sincerely thanks the Tule River Reservation (USDA Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations), Mr. Richard McDarment, USDA FDIR Director, Mrs. Patricia Salas, USDA FDIR Intake Manager, Mr. Jesus Salas, USDA FDIR Staff, and Mr. Ronald Buckman, USDA FDIR Staff & driver.
