Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) is an alternative to the Food Stamp program 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 $300.00 Utility/Shelter deduction available (please call for more information).
