About

The USDA Commodity Foods Program provides a variety of nutritious, free foods that enable low-income families to stretch their grocery dollars. Volunteers and local agencies donate their time and efforts to help make the USDA food available to their neighbors. University of Tennessee Agricultural Extension agents provide important information on how to use commodities. Funding is provided by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), also known as Commodities, is a federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income Americans, including elderly people, by providing them with emergency food and nutrition assistance at no cost. Food boxes are distributed by volunteers and Neighborhood Service Center staff members.
