All Tribal Member Elder Food Card Recipients

Myrna Thompson, Tribal Secretary

July 2021 Food Card Distribution

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, July 15, 2021, at Buche Foods. If you do not pick your food card up by Sunday, August 1, 2021, you can pick up your card on Monday, August 2, 2021, after 1:00pm, at my office located at the Tribal Administration building. New application received by our office for the Elder food card for July 2021 can pick up their card at Buche Food -Dakota Crossing located in Sisseton, SD. You must provide photo identification (Tribal ID card is acceptable) card to pick up. The rest of the food cards to be mailed for July 2021, the process has started and will continue until all cards are in the mail. Keep in mind, the food cards are individually enveloped, sealed, and delivered to the United States post office in Sisseton, SD. Ms. Minerva Keoke's first priority is to always finish the process of getting the food cards in the mail. This process can take up to 10 business days until the process is completed.

Helpful reminders and patience to keep in mind as we continue to manage the food cards as follows: It's beneficial to send 12 self-addressed stamped envelopes to our office for the year. If you have not received your food card after 6 weeks, it's more than likely due to our office does not have envelopes for you to mail the card to you. Please send more self-addressed stamped envelopes and address your mail to the attention of Tribal Secretary's Office, not Elderly Nutrition Program. Contact Ms. Minerva Keoke, Elderly Resource Coordinator, at 605-698-3911, extension 6633, with questions regarding the food card.

I continue to encourage you to protect yourself by wearing a mask, wash your hands, social

distance, and your willingness to help.
