The Emergency Food Assistance Program (FAP) is a Federal program that supplements the diets of low-income Americans by providing them with emergency food and nutrition assistance at no cost. U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) foods are purchased at the national level and made available to state agencies to distribute. States then provide the food to local agencies that have been selected to distribute commodities in their region. The Yolo Food Bank distributes EFAP commodities in Yolo County.
Products distributed through this program vary each month but often include non-perishable goods, frozen proteins, fresh produce and grains. Currently, Yolo Food Bank provides monthly emergency food to approximately 2,500 low-income households at more than 32 locations, including the Food Bank, food closets, and congregate feeding programs.
To qualify for this program, individuals must self certify that they meet income guidelines that have been determined by the State of California or visit: http://www.yolofoodbank.org/emergency-food-assistance-program.
This program is provided at the Yolo Branch Library the third Friday of each month at 9:00 a.m.
Program is sponsored by the Yolo County Library, the Yolo Food Bank and the Friends of the Yolo Branch Library of Yolo.
