Food Distribution Program

COVID-19 UPDATES

Out of an abundance of caution and to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19, certain Chickasaw Nation events, classes, facilities, etc., will be postponed, canceled or closed. For a complete list of postponements, cancellations or closures, visit the COVID-19 INFORMATION page. We will continue to update the list as the situation progresses.

Nutrition education and commodity foods are available through Food Distribution program grocery stores in nutrition centers in Ada, Ardmore, Duncan and Purcell, Oklahoma. Participants may shop on the day of their choice in any of the stores. Stores are closed the last two working days of each month.

Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) is an alternative to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) funded by the United States Department of Agriculture and is designed to promote the health and well-being of the Indian population by raising nutrition levels among low-income households. Benefits include nutrition education, food demonstrations, cooking classes and food packages with a wide variety of food choices, including fresh produce and frozen meats.

We now have a $350 Utility/Shelter deduction available (please call for more information).
