The Food Distribution Program is a federal program that provides USDA foods to low income American Indian and non-Indian households residing on a reservation and to households living in approved areas near a reservation that contain at least one person who is a member of a federally-recognized tribe.
Eligible households are certified based upon income guidelines set by the federal government. Participating households must be recertified or receive a follow-up at least once every 12 months.
The area served by the Pueblo of Acoma Food Distribution Program are the villages of the Acoma and Laguna Pueblos and the followings near areas of Bibo, Cubero, Grants, Milan, San Fidel, San Rafael, and Seboyeta.
Participating households receive a monthly food package to help maintain a nutritionally balanced diet.
