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.

Make a Difference in Your Community!
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) provides opportunities for people 55 and over to make a difference in their community through volunteer service. RSVP volunteers contribute anywhere from a few to over forty hours a week, serving through schools, day care centers, police departments, hospitals and other nonprofit and public organizations to help meet critical community needs. RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choice to its volunteers. RSVP matches the personal interests and skills of older Americans with opportunities to help solve community problems and offers supplemental insurance while on duty, and on-the-job training from the agency or organization where volunteers are placed.
We'll work with your schedule.
