The Bread Program
The Bread Program provides non-USDA foods to an average of 600 households a month on a weekly basis, as food is available. The households must be income eligible, and live in Anderson County. We are partnered with the regionally based Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee. They (as well churches, local friends, and city groups) donate food each week to the Anderson County Community Action Commission to distribute to income-eligible (within 200% of the Federal Poverty Income Level) Anderson County Residents.
Food is distributed Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 2pm.
APPLYING FOR FOOD ASSISTANCE
If your Household Income is within 200% of the Poverty Guidelines, and you live in Anderson County, you may receive assistance as funds are available.
