SALT LAKE CITY — Eligibility criteria for those seeking relief from the Emergency Food Assistance Program, or TEFAP, were announced Tuesday by the Utah State Board of Education, Child Nutrition Programs and Utah Food Bank.

Automatic eligibility is given to clients who currently participate in one of the following programs:

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP);
  • Medicaid;
  • Receive Free or Reduced-Price School Meal benefits; or
  • Have a child enrolled in the Federal Head Start Program.
