Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR)

Food/Nutrition > Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR)

 

Program Description:

The Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) provides commodity foods to low-income households on participating Indian reservations and Alaska Native Villages, and to Native American families residing in designated areas near those reservations. Households qualify for the program based on their income and resources, and must be re-certified at least every 12 months. Many Native Americans participate in the FDPIR as an alternative to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), usually because they do not have easy access to food stores. Households may not participate in FDPIR and SNAP in the same month.

FDPIR offers a variety of commodities to help participants maintain a balanced diet. In many locations, fresh produce may be selected in lieu of canned fruit and vegetables. Program participants also receive nutrition education to help them make the most nutritious use of the USDA commodity foods.
