This program provides supplies to the nation’s food banks . Over 50 million Americans suffer from hunger and turn to food banks and pantries for help. Bob Aiken, the president of Feeding America , said that the report “found in recent years that TEFAP contributions to the emergency food assistance system have become increasingly important as other supports, such as private food donations, have not kept pace with increased demand.” The USDA report states that “TEFAP foods account for approximately 20 percent of all foods distributed through Feeding Americas food banks and feeding agencies.” The nation’s system of foodbanks cannot get by without the support of TEFAP, whose funding is determined each year by Congress. Not only is the program providing food, but also the right food. Aiken adds, “This report shows what food banks and our clients have known all alongthe USDA has made great strides to ensure that TEFAP foods are highly nutritious, and that is apparent in how sought-after TEFAP foods are by our food banks and clients.” In 2012 TEFAP donated foods included “306 million pounds of fruits and vegetables, 180 million pounds of meat, 105 million pounds of milk and juice, 75 million pounds of grains, and 58 million pounds of other USDA Foods like soups, tomato-based sauces, eggs, and nut products.” Going forward, Congress will need to support TEFAP and other hunger fighting programs which are currently on the line in budget negotiations.

They were just hit first and worst,” Wattenbarger said. “It was devastating for families all across New Mexico, and we really expect to see elevated need for years to come.” New Mexico leads the nation when it comes to the rate of child food insecurity, with almost one in three children going without consistent access to food.
