The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) announced the award of more than $7.5 million in Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Farm to Food Bank Project funding to 29 states and territories that administer The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). Farm to Food Bank Grants support the harvesting, processing, packaging or transportation of food donated by agricultural producers, processors, or distributors for use by emergency feeding organizations, like food banks.
The purpose of Farm to Food Bank Projects is to (a) reduce food waste at the agricultural production, processing, or distribution level through the donation of food, (b) provide food to individuals in need, and (c) build relationships between agricultural producers, processors, and distributors and EFOs through the donation of food.
