The Food Distribution program has advanced from previous years to these grocery stores, which were recognized with a national award. Here, qualifying Native American families are able to find a variety of healthy foods from fresh produce to frozen meats with easy check-out and monitoring of their food packages. Dietitians are on staff to offer consultations, cooking tips and recipes.
