The Food Distribution Program is a federal program that provides USDA foods to low-income households residing in approved areas in Oklahoma. To be eligible to participate, the household must contain at least one person who is a member of a federally-recognized tribe.

Eligible households are certified based upon income standards 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 Ponca Tribe Food Distribution Program includes the counties of Kay, Noble, Grant, Garfield, and portions of Payne and Logan counties.
