The Foodbank has an exclusive contract with the Commonwealth of Virginia to distribute USDA TEFAP Commodities in our service area. The Foodbank distributes hundreds of thousands of pounds of these shelf stable, nutritious canned goods and staples through emergency pantry programs and our own food program each year.  Some additional paperwork is involved, as this is a Federal Government program.  USDA commodities can only be received once per month regardless of where they are accessed.
