EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (EFAP) 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 Arbuckle Family Action Center distributes food to families in Arbuckle, Dunnigan, and Grimes. Products distributed through this program vary each month but often include non-perishable goods, frozen proteins, fresh produce and grains. To qualify for this program, individuals must self-certify that they meet income guidelines that have been determined by the State of California.
