The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)
What is it?
The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income individuals by providing them with emergency food and
education at no cost. Hunger Task Force administers TEFAP and helps to distribute healthy emergency food free of charge to local pantries.
Why is it important?
TEFAP helps provide critical emergency food support for the most vulnerable families in our communities, while also helping stabilize our nation’s agricultural economy. Hunger
Task Force believes that every person has a right to adequate food obtained with dignity. We work to prevent hunger and malnutrition by providing food to people in need today and by
promoting social policies to achieve a hunger free community tomorrow.
Who is eligible?
Wisconsin individuals are eligible to receive food from participating food pantries based on income and household size. Income guidelines can be found here.
