The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a federal program that provides assistance to low-income families through the distribution of food available through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Western Dairyland operates the TEFAP program and provides supplemental food to four food pantries in our service area of Eau Claire, Buffalo, Trepealeau and Jackson Counties. These pantries are open monthly and provide an emergency supply of food that should last a houseshold two to three days. Many of the volunteers who run the food pantries come from Western Dairyland's RSVP Volunteer Program.
