Federal Food Distribution Program

CAPECO administers and operates the federal Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations.  The program allows income eligible households, who reside on the Umatilla Indian Reservation or who are enrolled in a recognized tribe to receive a month’s supply of USDA commodities in lieu of food stamps.  The program provides an opportunity for individuals to obtain a good nutritious supply of food plus gain educational information regarding health issues, nutrition and menu ideas.

Those seeking to qualify must contact CAPECO by phone at
1-800-752-1139, 541-276-5073x105 or in person to obtain an application.  All applications must be completed and have the appropriate supporting documentation in order to be eligible to receive food commodities.

Food commodities are distributed from our CAPECO Airport Location, 1605 NW 50th Dr., Pendleton, OR  97801. Our fax number is: 541-966-6024. Homebound individuals can contact the office for home delivery.

Due to inventory requirements food commodities are not offered during the last week of the month.  Distribution hours and days may vary, please refer to the FDPIR calendar for closures or call us for current hours and days of distribution. 

Hours of distribution are: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays: 8:30-11:30 & 1:30-4:30
