25 U.S. Code § 443d - Service of traditional foods in public facilities
The purposes of this section are—
(2) to encourage increased consumption of traditional foods to decrease health disparities among Indians, particularly Alaska Natives; and
In this section:
(1) Alaska Native
(3) Food service program
The term “food service program” includes—
(A) food service at residential child care facilities that have a license from an appropriate State agency;
(4) Indian; Indian tribe
(5) Traditional food
(A) In general
The term “traditional food” means food that has traditionally been prepared and consumed by an Indian tribe.
The Secretary and the Commissioner shall allow the donation to and serving of traditional food through food service programs at public facilities and nonprofit facilities, including facilities operated by Indian tribes and facilities operated by tribal organizations, that primarily serve Indians if the operator of the food service program—
(1) ensures that the food is received whole, gutted, gilled, as quarters, or as a roast, without further processing;
(2) makes a reasonable determination that—
(B) the food was butchered, dressed, transported, and stored to prevent contamination, undesirable microbial growth, or deterioration; and
(3) carries out any further preparation or processing of the food at a different time or in a different space from the preparation or processing of other food for the applicable program to prevent cross-contamination;
(4) cleans and sanitizes food-contact surfaces of equipment and utensils after processing the traditional food;
(6) stores the traditional food separately from other food for the applicable program, including through storage in a separate freezer or refrigerator or in a separate compartment or shelf in the freezer or refrigerator;
(7) follows Federal, State, local, county, tribal, or other non-Federal law regarding the safe preparation and service of food in public or nonprofit facilities; and
(1) In general
The United States, an Indian tribe, and a tribal organization shall not be liable in any civil action for any damage, injury, or death caused to any person by the donation to or serving of traditional foods through food service programs.
 So in original. Probably should be “450”.
