COMMODITY ALLOCATIONS/POSTINGS

We have a large inventory of USDA items that have allowed us to make the decision to allow all TEFAP agencies to order as they wish. Please do not over order, take only what you can store and distribute in a timely manner.

All available items are visible on the Agency Express ordering portal.

For the time being, these postings will be suspended until we return to the system of actual allocations of products.

DROP DELIVERY INFORMATION

Please note – no drop deliveries on the 5th week of the month

February 2021 Drop Schedule

March 2021 Drop Schedule

April 2021 Drop Schedule

God’s Pantry Food Bank currently makes bi-monthly deliveries to 15 locations in our service area. Because our service area is so vast and some agency locations are remote, agencies are able to pick up their orders at sites closer to their distribution site. This free service keeps costs down for the agencies and gets more food in the hands of hungry Kentuckians. When placing an order, agencies can request their order at any of the drop locations listed below.

Pay close attention to pick-up times. It is very important that you pick up your order between the hours indicated for each location as our drivers are on tight schedules. Failure to pick up product could result in suspension from the drop delivery program.

CIVIL RIGHTS TRAINING INFORMATION

To effectively meet the Emergency Feeding Assistance Program civil rights requirements, Kentucky Department of Agriculture and its site partners and volunteers must receive Civil Rights Training. Each person that receives the annual training must sign a training verification form to be kept on file at each agency. Agencies will be inspected for compliance with this requirement during the annual agency monitor visit.
