Food Distribution Programs

The Food Distribution Program staff has administrative responsibility for the receipt and distribution of USDA Foods and funds that are supplied by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Recipients include schools, residential child care institutions, summer camps, and low-income households in need of nutrition assistance. The annual value of the food purchased for Michigan by the USDA for distribution to schools is over $32 million and over $37 million for household programs. The School Food Distribution Program is available to schools and agencies participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The household programs administered by the Food Distribution Unit include the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) and The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). The CSFP is designed to improve the health of low-income elderly persons, 60 years and older, by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA donated foods. TEFAP supplements the diets of low-income persons of all ages, including elderly people, by providing emergency food and nutrition assistance.
