USDA TEFAP PROGRAM

MAKING COMMODITY FOODS AVAILABLE TO NORTH CENTRAL ARKANSAS

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE COMMODITIES PROGRAM

The Food Bank of NCA contracts with the Arkansas Department of Human Services to distribute United States Department of Agriculture Commodities to select partner hunger relief organizations in each of the nine counties served by the Food Bank. The purpose of The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is to supplement the diets of low-income Americans, including elderly, by providing them with emergency food and nutritional assistance at no cost.

 

Under TEFAP, the USDA makes commodity foods available to State Distributing Agencies. The amount of food that each state receives out of the total amount of food provided is based on the number of unemployed persons and the number of people with incomes below the poverty level in the state. States provide the food to local agencies that they have selected, usually food banks and CAP agencies, which in turn distribute the food to local organizations, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, and mass distribution sites. Recipients of food for home use must meet income eligibility criteria set by each participating state.
