The Emergency Food Assistance Program

The United States Department of Agriculture, or USDA, makes commodity foods available to State Distributing Agencies. States provide the food to local agencies that directly serve the public (food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens, etc.).  The local organizations distribute the food to eligible recipients for household consumption, or use them to prepare and serve meals in a congregate setting.  Recipients of food for home use must meet income and household eligibility criteria seen below.
