TEFAP Form Changes July 1

Jun 10, 2015

Each year, the Federal and State Eligibility to Take Food Home (TEFAP) form changes on July 1, coinciding with the state of Ohio’s fiscal year. Please dispose of all blank July 2014 forms. Your agency will need to file and store all forms currently being used, and clients will need to complete a new form to begin this new fiscal year.

Keep in mind that if a food pantry client uses a proxy, the proxy form needs to be updated each year as well.  As with all Foodbank documentation, we require maintaining all files for at least three years for auditing purposes. 

Would you be interested in a system that automatically updates the TEFAP form for you? PantryTrak, an online, cloud based system for client intake, not only updates the TEFAP form automatically on July 1, but it also generates all data for the monthly report and much more. Agencies interested in PantryTrak simply need a computer and internet to use this system. If your agency is interested in learning more about PantryTrak, contact Gary Green, Manager, Member Services at 330.777.7575 or
