All Tribal Member Elder Food Card Recipients

Myrna Thompson, Tribal Secretary

Our office will be distributing the food cards as follows: Buche - Dakota Crossing food cards will be available to pick up and use on Thursday, May 13, 2021. Per RF Buche letter dated May 2, 2021, new cards will be issued and a new phone number on the back of the card will be available to call regarding your food card balance.

New Elder recipients of the food card can pick up their card at Buche Food- Dakota Crossing located in Sisseton, SD, and you must provide photo identification (Tribal ID card is acceptable) card to pick up.

The rest of the food cards to be mailed will start on Friday, May 14, 2021. All food cards are individually enveloped, sealed, and delivered to the United States post office in Sisseton, SD. Ms. Minerva Keoke's first p1iority is to always finish the process of getting the food cards in the mail. This process can take up to 10 business days until completed.

Helpful reminders and patience to keep in mind as we continue to manage the food cards as follows: Please safeguard your food card. Lost cards will be treated as lost cash per RF Buche letter. Contact Ms. Minerva Keoke, Elderly Resource Coordinator, at 605-698-3911, extension 6633, with questions regarding the food card. Please leave a voice mail with your name, phone number, and reason for calling. If you miss her return phone call, Minerva will leave a message for you, if your voice mail is set-up/working. Our office recommends you provide at least 12 self-addressed stamped envelopes for the year.

Warm and sunny weather is on its way however, I continue to encourage you to protect yourself by wearing a mask, wash your hands, social distance, and your willingness to help.

Myrna Thompson, Tribal Secretary
