ON Title VI Elder Nutrition Program provides food kits for elders during boil order

The Osage Nation Title VI Elder Nutrition Program provided food kits to elders after E.coli was discovered in the Pawhuska water supply Aug. 12. A boil order was issued for city residents, which lasted five days.

Elders received meal kits for 12 meals, plus a case of water. Title VI was not able to prepare their regular lunch menu due to the lack of clean water. Osage Casinos also delivered water for elders at the Title VI in Pawhuska after the boil order was issued.
