Feeding Families and Individuals

We provide emergency food boxes through the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), a federal program that supplements the diets of low-income individuals and families. Food boxes are available at Yuma Community Food Bank locations and other agencies in Yuma County. 

TEFAP Eligibility Guidelines

You will be asked to self-declare that you meet the income guidelines set by the Department of Economic Security. Eligible individuals can pick up emergency food boxes once per month. The amount of emergency food a family will receive is based on the number of members in the household. 

The pantry or agency you visit will ask for the following information:

  • Name

  • Your date of birth, and the date of birth of any family members living with you

  • The number of people in your family

  • Proof that you live in the service area, i.e., a water or electric bill, rent receipt with your name and the physical address

  • A photo ID
