Income Guidelines Change for Emergency Food Program
Group provides low-income Plymouth and Northville residents with canned and non-perishable food items.
As of Jan. 1, income guidelines have been adjusted to allow more individuals and families to be served by the Emergency Food Assistance Program, or TEFAP, according to a news release by the Plymouth Community United Way.
The group provides low-income Plymouth and Northville residents with canned and non-perishable food items. The next distribution is scheduled for Jan. 19 at St. Kenneth Catholic Church, according to the news release. All recipients must be pre-registered.
According to the news release, this is a supplemental food program so it can be used with other assistance programs. Bridge Card holders automatically quality, but need to pre-register. Recipients not currently on governmental assistance (food stamps, ADC and general) need to provide documentation including proof
of income and residency before receiving food on distribution days.
Distributions continue the third Thursday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at St. Kenneth Catholic Church. For information and to register, call Plymouth Community United Way at (734) 453-6879, ext. 7.
