TEFAP Program

Enrolling in the TEFAP program is now required for all mobile agencies. Due to the lack of fresh produce, we will be supplementing with USDA product on our mobile distributions. Our agencies do not have the ability to select items on their distribution and therefore we are requiring the completion of the USDA agreement for all mobile host agencies. Click here for the mobile pantry agreement.

Overview

Overview The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income residents by providing them with emergency food and nutrition assistance at no cost. Through TEFAP, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) purchases USDA Foods and makes it available to qualifying agencies for distribution.
