The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP): Eligibility and Income Guidelines

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)

Wisconsin households are eligible to receive commodities at participating food pantries if the total gross income for the household does not exceed 300% of the federal poverty level. Eligibility is based on self-declared income. There are no income eligibility criteria for persons who voluntarily seek meals at soup kitchens or homeless shelters.
