TEFAP Update 3-19-2020

TEFAP Update Information

Effective immediately, income eligibility for TEFAP has increased to 250% of the Federal Poverty Guideline. This increase will remain in effect through June 14th, 2020. Attached are new English and Spanish TEFAP applications with updated monthly income eligibility. Please make sure that these are distributed to your pantries and feeding sites for immediate use.

For the safety of participants on your program, as well as you, your staff and your volunteers – please consider exploring alternative distribution models (e.g., drive-through distributions, appointment-based distribution, home delivery for homebound individuals and vulnerable populations). We want to make sure that everyone is in a situation where they are able to safely access the food during this time.

Let The Idaho Foodbank know where we are able to assist and what concerns you have going forward.

Let us know if you anticipate any closures, or reduced hours in response to current events.

Let us know what challenges you’re facing in regarding to capacity, volunteers, space, etc.
