This page contains useful information related to programs and services offered by Food and Nutrition Services.

Commodity Supplemental Food Program

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) works to improve the health of low-income elderly persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods. Women, infants, and children who were certified and receiving CSFP benefits as of February 6, 2014, can continue to receive assistance until they are no longer eligible under the program rules in effect on February 6, 2014. Through CSFP, USDA distributes both food and administrative funds to participating States and Indian Tribal Organizations.

The Emergency Food Assistance Program

Under TEFAP, USDA Foods are made available to States. States provide the food to local agencies that they have selected, usually food banks, which in turn, distribute the food to soup kitchens and food pantries that directly serve the public.

USDA Food In Schools 

The USDA Foods in Schools program supports domestic nutrition programs and American agricultural producers through purchases of 100% American-grown and -produced foods for use by schools and institutions participating in the National School Lunch Program, the Child and Adult Care Food Program, and the Summer Food Service Program. USDA Foods are available to Child Nutrition Programs in three ways: direct delivery, USDA Foods Processing, and the USDA DOD Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.

Fresh Fruit And Veggie Program

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program provides free fresh fruits and vegetables in selected low-income elementary schools nationwide. The purpose of the Program is to increase children’s fresh fruit and vegetable consumption and at the same time combat childhood obesity by improving children’s overall diet and create healthier eating habits to impact their present and future health.

National School Lunch Program

School districts and independent schools that choose to take part in the lunch program get cash subsidies and USDA Foods for each meal they serve. In return, they must serve lunches that meet Federal requirements, and they must offer free or reduced price lunches to eligible children. School food authorities can also be reimbursed for snacks served to children through age 18 in afterschool educational or enrichment programs.

Summer Food Service Program

SFSP is the single largest Federal resource available for local sponsors who want to combine a feeding program with a summer activity program. Children in your community do not need to go hungry this summer. During the school year, nutritious meals are available through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. But those programs end when school ends for the summer. The Summer Food Service Program helps fill the hunger gap.

LIVING ASSISTANCE

The Nevada Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program is a federally funded block grant program through the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). It is designed to provide temporary assistance for needy families so dependent children may be cared for in their own homes or in the homes of relative caretakers. TANF furnishes financial, medical and support services such as child care, transportation and other supports for families that are not employed, underemployed or unable to work. Federal law allows a five-year lifetime limit.

ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The Energy Assistance Program (EAP) assists low-income Nevadans with their home energy needs by providing qualified households with an annual benefit credited to their utility account. The benefit amount varies based on household size, income, and energy usage.

Households may receive assistance with rearranges (pass due bills) when funding is available. Assistance is limited to once in a lifetime.
