Supplemental Programs

Emergency Feeding Assistance Program (EFAP)

EFAP is a federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income Americans by providing them with healthful foods at no cost. Under EFAP, commodity foods are made available to local agencies for distribution to needy households for use in preparing meals for home consumption, or to organizations that prepare and provide meals for the needy. Recipients of food for home use must meet program eligibility criteria set by the State.

Eligibility
  • Organizations that provide prepared meals to needy persons.
  • Households that meet state eligibility criteria which is based on the total household monthly income and is compared to a federally established income eligibility scale. This is the same scale used to determine eligibility for food stamps. Recipients of prepared meals are considered to be needy and are not subject to a means test.

Commodity Supplemental Food Program

The CSFP is a program administered by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture for Kentucky residents. The program provides generous monthly packages of food carefully selected to provide broad nutritious food for a well balanced diet, as well as nutritional education and information to enable our clients to enjoy healthier eating habits and healthier lives.

Eligibility
    Kentucky residents in any of the following categories who meet household income guidelines, set annually by the Federal Government:
  • Senior citizens over the age of 60.
  • If you qualify for other federal health or food assistance programs and meet the above age/condition eligibility criteria, you may qualify for CSFP.
