The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)
Low-income families who earn 185% or less of the federal poverty level and are in need of food are eligible to receive TEFAP food. Families visiting food banks are asked to self-declare their income and are not asked to provide verification. Those individuals going to emergency meal providers are assumed eligible and will not be required to meet income eligibility verification.
Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)
CSFP provides food "packages" to the elderly at least 60 years of age. Elderly clients must not have monthly incomes more than 130% of the federal poverty level.
