The Service Team will be working with Emanuel Lutheran Church and Trinity United Methodist Church to put together food distribution boxes for the TEFAP program here in Hutchinson. The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income people by providing them with emergency food assistance at no cost. USDA provides 100% American-grown USDA Foods and administrative funds to states to operate TEFAP. Find out more here…The Emergency Food Assistance Program | Food and Nutrition Service (usda.gov).
All members of YP are welcome to serve in this role. Please register below or let YP Service Team Chair, Bret Mathes, know of your interest. We will meet in the evening at the boxing facility and place pre-packaged food items in boxes for distribution at a later date. The boxing of items should take two hours depending on what items have been delivered for distribution.
