EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Staying true to our mission of helping those in need in our community, the food bank provides a supplementary food bag to all those who come in to the food bank requesting emergency food items.
 
These clients are then referred to one of our over 60 member agencies located throughout our eight county service area where they can receive food assistance at least once a month.
 

The South Texas Food Bank's  Emergency Food Assistance Program, a network made up of over 80 agencies, is a  program that  provides low-income individuals and households with surplus commodities donated by USDA as well as with the funding from other entities such the City of Laredo Third Party Funding. 

This program is designed to supplement the nutritional needs of program eligible individuals and households; but is not designed to satisfy all hunger needs or nutritional requirements of participating individuals or households.
 
Eligibility Requirements:
In order to be eligible to receive TEFAP commodities, your income must fall within  the TEFAP Eligibility Guidelines and live in the service area.
