The Emergency Food Assistance Program

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a federal program that provides food assistance to low-income households through the distribution of food commodities from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Services (FNS). TEFAP is a supplemental food assistance program that is designed to work in combination with other assistance programs in efforts to maximize and target limited food and funding resources. Community Action, Inc. is one of 16 Emergency Feeding Organizations (EFOs) administering the distribution of TEFAP commodities to food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. The program is supported by funding from the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services (DHFS).

(See food pantry locations below for Rock and Walworth County.)
