The Emergency Food Assistance Program is an emergency food program. Starting January 2023 TEFAP products will be going out in CSFP (senior) boxes monthly & delivered to local partner pantries throughout our 11 county service area. Once all pantry locations have been established, a full detailed list including hours will be shared here. 

What Is It?

Helping to Supplement the Diets of Low-Income Michiganders

  • You do not need ID or proof of income. 
  • TEFAP can help you by providing healthy food to supplement your food budget. 
  • If you cannot pick up your food, someone may be your "proxy" and will need a note from you to pick up your food. 

Am I Eligible?

  • You live within one of our service counties (listed above)

    Eligibility for TEFAP is based on the need for emergency food and the household meets the below income guidelines or participates in SNAP, WIC, FDPIR, CSFP or a child receives free/reduced meals at school.
