The Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) provides USDA Foods to income-eligible households living on Indian reservations and to Native American households residing in designated areas near reservations or in Oklahoma. Visit the FDPIR homepage to learn more about the program.

The FDPIR Sharing Gallery is a repository of resources and materials to assist Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs) who administer FDPIR in providing food and nutrition information to their program participants.
