Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Packed Promise program?

It is a food benefit program that creates an experience similar to online grocery shopping, where each month, participants select a desired food package, and then place an order via the Packed Promise website or by calling Packed Promise staff. A food package of shelf-stable foods is delivered directly to participants’ doorsteps. Included in each monthly package is a bonus FRESH check, with a cash value of $15, to purchase fresh and/or frozen fruits and vegetables at WIC grocery stores or Farmers’ Markets within the Chickasaw Nation.
