Lockdowns have been put in place for both the Navajo and Hopi reservations. But with another COVID-19 surge and limited resources, the tribes need a second infusion of donations. 

Without additional funding for another surge in coronavirus cases, both the Navajo and Hopi tribes will be forced to stop providing food boxes to families in a matter of weeks.

Only 16 hospitals and two clinics serve both reservation communities. In addition, the communities have only 14 grocery stores to serve 30,000 square miles, making the areas food deserts.
