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.
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:
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 valid government issued photo ID
