Anyone in need of emergency and/or supplemental food is encouraged to apply for assistance at their local food pantries.

Our mission is to supplement food for your household by offering you nutritious, healthy food at no cost while you are in need. The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) at Lakeshore CAP is one of 16 Emergency Feeding Organizations (EFO) in the state of Wisconsin.

As an EFO, we administer distribution of TEFAP commodities from the USDA to food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in our 9 designated counties: Calumet, Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Outagamie, Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Washington and Waupaca (Click on TEFAP Pantries link below for a list of pantries in each county).

Requirements: Proof of address when you apply (utility bill, phone bill, etc.) and an ID each time you pick up food; documentation for each member of your household upon application or no later than your third visit. 2018 Eligibility: Households that meet income eligibility guidelines may receive monthly USDA and donated food.

Take only the food you need, be honest about your household size and income, provide the required documentation, keep them up to date with your address and contact information — and they’ll be happy to help until affording food is no longer a challenge for you! (Other responsibilities apply.)
