Food Programs

The mission of the Quileute Food Distribution Program is to help people end food scarcity on the Quileute reservation and in the Tribe’s service areas. Our program helps encourage a healthy lifestyle by providing information in line with improved dietary guidelines from the United State’s Department of Agriculture. Our goal is to collaborate with other programs to not only provide nutrition education, but help families gain self-sufficiency with regards to food and food preparation. With the help of our funding agencies, we have included the goal to increase knowledge of local foods and increase knowledge on how to prepare and serve traditional foods.

TEFAP Income Guidelines
