Increase TEFAP Funding to Support Farmers and Food Banks

Dear [Decision Maker],

I urge you to support full funding - $100 million for the TEFAP Administrative Grants account, which helps offset a portion of the expenses that food banks incur when storing and distributing TEFAP foods.

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a critical anti-hunger program, providing nutritious fruits, vegetables, protein items, and grains to food banks across the country. Without adequate funding, food banks will be left to cover these costs during a time when more families are turning to emergency food programs for help.

As we continue to navigate these uncertain times, we must ensure that ALL members of our communities have the tools and resources they need to thrive. Your support in strengthening TEFAP will only increase access to basic needs like food for families in Northeast Ohio and across the country.
