Each year in July, the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) updates the income guidelines for the Texas The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).
Please print these guidelines and make them available wherever intake is completed at your agency. These guidelines should not be posted in a public manner; these income guidelines are for use by staff and volunteers to determine eligibility. We will ask to see your copy when we visit.

The FDA regularly posts recall notices to its website. Our Inventory department monitors these and posts updates weekly on the "Food Bank Links" area of the Online Shopping List. We will also sometimes distribute the information via email when it applies to a product we may have received. Check this list frequently for any recalled items.
Everyone in your organization should be familiar with the Partner Agency Guidebook. Be sure to print a copy for your key staff and/or volunteers from our Download a document section
Please print this for anyone who orders, reports, or picks-up for your agency.
When discussing your partnership with the North Texas Food Bank to the public through your newsletters, appeal letters, grants, websites or media interviews please do not make any reference to "buying" food from the Food Bank. It generates an inaccurate impression and could jeopardize the ability of individuals and businesses to receive tax deductions for their product donations. Click here to learn more
