The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating impacts on the nation’s food systems and economy, forcing many Americans to turn to the country’s emergency food network for aid. Food banks, food pantries, and other community organizations have valiantly stepped up to meet this increase in need while simultaneously ensuring that staff and recipients are not unnecessarily exposed to the dangers of COVID-19. However, some inequities within the broader emergency food network remain – especially in remote, rural, Tribal, and/or low-income communities. Thus, the key objective of the TEFAP Reach and Resiliency – Round 2 grant is to:
Expand TEFAP’s reach into remote, rural, Tribal, and/or low-income areas that are underserved by the program.
