Our office works directly for households in need of food assistance throughout Colorado. There are two programs currently administered by our office; The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), and The Emergency Food Assistance Program, (TEFAP).

 

CSFP is a federally funded program that provides USDA foods to participants who are pregnant, breastfeeding, up to one year postpartum, children up to their sixth birthday, and seniors 60 years of age or older.

 

TEFAP is a federally funded program that provides USDA foods to low-income households.  For more information on these programs, please click here.

 

USDA foods provided through the FDP are a nutritious form of food assistance that includes meats, fish, poultry, grains, dairy, fruits, vegetables and beans.  The FDP relies on a partnership of the entire community; including the Food and Dairy Industry, Federal and State Governments, and Local Agencies for the ongoing success to meet the demands of our clients.
