The Emergency Food Assistance Program, TEFAP, provides low-income Plymouth and Northville residents with supplemental items that are primarily canned and non-perishable.
All recipients must be preregistered. This is a supplemental food program so it may be used in addition to other assistance programs. Bridge Card holders automatically qualify but need to register. Recipients not currently on governmental assistance (food stamps, ADC, and general) need to provide documentation including proof of income, residence (Plymouth or Northville), and the number of household members before receiving food on distribution days.
If you live in the Canton or Westland area, you cannot receive food from us, you must go to your nearest TEFAP location.
Canton has one location, please call 734.394.5460 to pre-register. TEFAP takes place on the third Wednesday of every month.
Westland has two different locations, please call 734.595.0366 to pre-register. TEFAP takes place on the third Thursday of every month; OR you can call 734.729.1737 to pre-register. TEFAP will take place on the second Monday of every month.
Food distributions are held on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at The City of Plymouth Cultural Center Ice Arena.
For information and to register, contact the Plymouth Community United Way office.
