TEFAP Nondiscrimination Requirements

It is a requirement of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) that all recipients of their commodities and/or funding comply with and enforce the prohibition against discrimination in all FNS nutrition programs and activities, whether federally funded in whole or not. View the USDA’s Nondiscrimination Policy statement for the language to post. The USDA has a process for anyone seeking to file a complaint. The process is detailed here. The complaint form is also available in Spanish.

The following items are mandatory for use by all Connecticut Foodshare partners that receive TEFAP commodities. Please share the information to all front-line staff and volunteers that assist with your food program.

Current TEFAP Civil Rights Resources and Forms

All agencies that obtain USDA foods must display the “And Justice For All” poster where individuals visiting you for food can see it. If you need a poster, please contact your Network Relations Representative. It is not acceptable to post an 8.5 x 11 copy of the poster.

  • TEFAP Civil Rights Training – required for each person involved in distributing TEFAP food at each participating program. The training is available in English and Spanish at the link above.
    • Be sure to enter both your email and the email address of the primary contact at the organization for which you work/volunteer. You and the primary contact will receive a certificate of completion by email. Connecticut Foodshare will also receive a copy of the certificate.

If you have volunteers with no access to a computer: Print the Civil Rights training manual in English and Spanish to use for training and then have the trainee complete the Civil Rights Documentation of Training form.

For questions regarding Civil Rights Requirements visit the USDA Civil Rights Page: https://www.fns.usda.gov/civil-rights
