The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP): helps supplement the diets of low-income Americans, including elderly people, by providing them with emergency food and nutrition assistance at no cost.

The EverGreen Box/The Everday Eats Program (formerly known as the Commodity Supplemental Food Program -CSFP) Designed specifically to support the aging population, these boxes provide necessary nutrition for our senior citizens in Routt County.

In 2021, we served 1,940 boxes of USDA food staples to Routt County neighbors.

Because the Colorado Department of Human Services administers U.S. Department of Agriculture programs, it is required to follow various USDA rules and regulations. Institutions participating in or administering USDA programs are required to display the appropriate “And Justice for All” poster in their facilities where it can be viewed by customers. All "And Justice for All" posters may not be reproduced or published in any way. This means that agencies may only post the authorized poster received from our office or their regional food bank.

In accordance with federal civil rights law and USDA civil rights regulations and policies, the USDA, its agencies, offices and employees, and institutions participating in or administering USDA programs, are prohibited from discriminating based various factors. You can read the USDA's full nondiscrimination statement in English and Spanish by clicking this link: USDA Non-discrimination statement.

USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
