The Emergency Food Assistance Program
TEFAP ( The Emergency Food Assistance Program) is another way to receive food assistance through the Pantry. This program is funded by the USDA and food items are sent monthly to be distributed to those in need. We don't have a say in the food items that come and patrons who show up will be given a bin or 2 of what items were shipped. Since this is a USDA program, there are income guidelines a household must fall within to receive food and there is required paperwork needed to receive food. TEFAP happens the first Tuesday of every month.
Be A Part Of The Change
At Afton Food Pantry, we are dedicated to supporting individuals through our various initiatives. With one of our initiatives being Volunteer Work, we are always striving to make a difference. We encourage church groups, school groups, families, kids, teams, coworkers and friends to come down and volunteer.
Afton Food Pantry depends on your commitment to volunteer in order to promote real change on the ground and in local communities. If it weren’t for the active participation of countless individuals, Afton Food Pantry would be far more limited.
If you are interested in volunteering to help on a TEFAP night, please look for Tuesdays on the sign up.
We are currently open the first Tuesday night of every month from 5:30-6:30pm. If, for some reason, you cannot make that time and are in need of food please send someone to pick your food for you.
