Food Bank

Our regional food bank is supplemented by OSG funds, small pots of grant funds, and donations.  We provide emergency and on-going food bank services to those families who meet the financial eligibility requirements within the Compact service area.  Because OSG funds the food bank services, we have a limited service area- those Tribes that compact their OSG program with BBNA- unless other Tribes contribute to the Food Bank for services.
