The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a program offered to clients through some of the Food Bank of Northern Indiana's  member agencies.  Through this program, the Food Bank of Northern Indiana receives commodities that are purchased by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), administered through the Indiana State Department of Health and from here, distributed to 66 member agencies that participate in the TEFAP program.  Once the commodities are at the food pantries and soup kitchens that house the USDA products, they are give to hungry people in need.

TEFAP allows the Food Bank of Northern Indiana to reach out to more individuals with healthy food options.  These commodities help supplement pantry supplies to those 66 member agencies that participate in this program.
