MNR Buffalo Meat Distribution @ Meskwaki Tribal Center Front Entrance
Nov 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Meskwaki Natural Resources is excited to announcement the first buffalo meat distribution of the season! The Covid-19 pandemic caused many supply chain disruptions throughout the year and food security needs became more crucial and apparent than ever before. We are excited to be able to offer the Meskwaki Community a source of buffalo meat. Due to many disruptions however, MNR was only able to harvest about one third of what is typically done in a year. With that, we ask that you still bring reusable grocery bags to reduce the dependency on single use plastic, but we will not be offering an additional pound of meat for doing so. We want to ensure as many households gain access to this opportunity as possible. Finally, we ask that everyone in attendance wear a mask and to social distance while in line, and do not come if you are experiencing any covid-19 symptoms. Thank you to the community for the support year after year to help make this distribution a success! We hope to see you there!

Buffalo Meat Distribution for Seniors and Elders @ Meskwaki Senior Services
Dec 1 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
Buffalo Meat Distribution for Seniors and Elders @ Meskwaki Senior Services | Tama | Iowa | United States

On Tuesday, December 1st Meskwaki Natural Resources is partnering with Senior Services to provide buffalo meat to seniors and elders who were not able to access meat through the regular meat distribution. Due to the high demand and low quantities of meat, MNR set aside meat for seniors and elders to ensure they are provided a share of buffalo meat without risking covid-19 exposures or running out of meat early. The distribution will take place at the Seniors starting at 11:30am and will end at 12:30pm. This special distribution is for SENIORS and ELDERS ONLY to ensure they get a share of meat from our 2020 meat supply. Those that qualify to get meat through this special distribution include: Home bound seniors and elders, Seniors or elders that did not have relatives pick up meat for them, Seniors or elders that did not receive meat because the distribution ran out of supplies. If your name is on the list from the November 19th distribution, you do not qualify for a share of meat through Senior Services.
