The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP)
The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a supplemental food assistance program offered through Orange County Social Services. Monthly food distribution events are scheduled every fourth Wednesday. Eligible recipients must receive FNS benefits (also known as food stamps) or meet income requirements.
Appointments are required to receive food during TEFAP distribution events. To reserve an appointment, recipients must call 919-245-4354 on the day prior to a TEFAP food distribution event. Recipients can choose to pick up their reserved food from either the Hillsborough (113-B Mayo Street) or Chapel Hill (2501 Homestead Road) location.
For more information about the TEFAP program, call 919-245-4354.
