The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)
The TEFAP provides non-profit distribution sites with commodities for redistribution to low-income families. This food is for household consumption and is free, but recipients must meet state and federal guidelines. Soup kitchens and other non-profit organizations that prepare and serve meals for needy individuals can also receive food at no cost.
- ID and proof of Nevada residency is required for the receipt of USDA food.
- Each household must read the “Self Declaration Assurance” and certify eligibility by signing the issuance sheet that their household income does not exceed 150% of the federal poverty guidelines.
- For each additional household member add $502.50 per month.
Income Guidelines Effective July 1, 2013
