Chinook Indian Nation to Close Food Bank

After 25 years of operation, the Chinook Indian Nation is shutting down its food bank in Chinook, the small southwest Washington town, because it can’t pay the building’s monthly rental fee of $100, reported the Associated Press.

The rent cost the tribe only $50 a month, which was paid out of donated money for the past three years, because a community church has been contributing the other $50, Tribal Office Manager Jennifer Lagergren told The Daily News. According to Lagergren, the Tribe did not have to pay rent on the food bank when tribal offices were located in the building.

The food bank will stop serving the approximately 70 to 80 families it helps per month when it closes its doors on December 31, reported The Daily News.

The 2,900-member Chinook Indian Nation has fought for years for official federal recognition.
