Due to the Coronavirus the Winnebago Food Distribution Program will be maintaining social distancing and minimal social contact. The Winnebago Food Distribution Food Store will remain closed. To accommodate our current households – April 2, 2020 the WFD Staff will be taking phone orders and you may pick up your food package by appointment only from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. To maintain social distancing pick up is 8 feet away from the Food Distribution building. For elderly and those with no transportation curb side deliveries only will be scheduled by appointment from 12 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. – excluding weekends.
For incoming applications we will process the applications over the phone to seek eligibility during regular business hours 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. – excluding weekends. Emailing, faxing and texting documentation is accepted. If eligible the shopping will be done over the phone with WFD Staff and pickup and delivery options are stated above.

The Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) is a Federal program that provides USDA foods to low-income households, including the elderly, living on Indian reservations, and to Native American families residing in designated areas near reservations in Thurston, Dakota and Dixon Counties in Nebraska.

To find out whether you are eligible and to apply for benefits, please complete the attached Winnebago Food Distribution application completely with all information pertaining to your household, signed and return it to the Winnebago Food Distribution Program in person, fax or email.

Households cannot participate in FDPIR and the USDA Supplemental Nutrition Program (SNAP) in the same month. The State of Nebraska and Iowa complete SNAP verifications with our program.
