AICHO's food boxes started out as a way to make sure the residents at the American Indian Community Housing Organization had enough to eat.

Stay-at-home orders beginning in March meant kids were at home and eating meals there instead of school.  It meant sometimes there were extra family members quarantining together. 

But the boxes, originally intended to feed and comfort AICHO's residents, grew into a way to feed and comfort elders and others on reservations around the state, and, in the process, feed and comfort the producers who create the foods themselves.
