Food Distribution (2)

To strengthen the nutrition safety net through commodity distribution to low income Native American families. To provide friendly, respectful, and cooperative assistance to those who come to the Comanche Nation for services.

 

About Us

The program is administered solely with funds provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Nutrition Services. The program is designed to provide commodities for low income Native American head of households. We currently serve 10,800 participants a year. The service area is Comanche, Cotton, Tillman, and the eastern part of Jackson County. All Native American households, in which one member is enrolled in a federally recognized tribe, are eligible to apply. Native Americans that reside within the city limits of Lawton and Altus are ineligible to participate in the program. Their only alternative is to apply for the Food Stamp Program with the Department of Human Services.
