Commodities Program (TEFAP)
To qualifying residents of Teller County, we provide food packages once every month, normally on the last Friday of the month. Qualifying is done by a simple signup and providing basic information about your situation.
We serve an average of 100 households and 45 seniors a month.
Through the Aspen Mine Center, many volunteers package and distribute USDA food to qualifying residents of Teller County on a monthly basis. We receive $55,000 worth of food each year for this program. There is never a fee for this service.
