This month’s USDA Food Distribution was held on Thursday the 16th of February 2023.
It was a good distribution with great weather and an abundance of food for the many that depend upon this program.
Programs such as these were initiated outside of the BIA’s purview as to avoid their meddling and ever attempted cancellation of any services the tribal government tries to acquire on our citizens’ behalf and for the greater Native Indian community.
Not only does the tribe service its citizens but also others that qualify within the tribe’s service area whom rely upon this program to supplement their families nutritional needs even though those needs are much to the chagrin of the local BIA.
This was a very good distribution and spiral sliced holiday hams were still available as an added bonus for the families that requested them.
Of the distributions that were collected for those not able to attend, arrangements will be made as always to deliver to their homes. Currently another service specifically performed individually by the California Valley Miwok Tribe.
The tribe would like to thank all its partners in this program and to additional departments who supply the tribe with health related needs and services when required in servicing our greater Native American community.
The United States Department of Agriculture, The Red Lake Nation of Minnesota, The California Office of Emergency Services, The California Department of Justice, The Federal Emergency Management Agency, The Tule River Tribe and especially the Tule River Food Distribution Department and our monthly service provider and good friend Ronald Buckman.
