Food Assistance Eligibility
Every year, the TEFAP Eligibility and TEFAP Guidelines are updated resulting in the creation of new forms to be used by food assistance programs. These new forms have been released and beginning today, Saturday July 1st, we MUST begin using the new 2023 forms for TEFAP Eligibility and TEFAP Guidelines. Since our agency uses PantryTrak/FreshTrak the form will be automatically updated and our procedure will remain the same.
Should the FreshTrak system (or simply should our WiFi go down), Heart to Heart is required to use paper forms to replace electronic check in. Check the bottom left side of the form for the correct date. The new forms should read: JFS 04221 (Rev. 7/2023) or JFS 04224 (REV. 7/2023) All other forms that do not have the Revised Date need to be discarded and no longer used.
You are encouraged to take this opportunity to educate yourself about food assistance eligibility and poverty guidelines. Please review the table below or click the links to view complete forms.

Did you know Mid-Ohio Food Collective has a podcast? Since January, MOFC has been producing their podcast Everyone At The Table. If you’re interesting in advocacy work, this is an informative listen.
The podcast’s most recent episode “The $15 Million Question: The statehouse’s impact on hunger and how to be an advocate”focuses on the potential impact of the state budget and what it could mean for the future of hunger in Ohio.
If you are attending services at North, please look for the donation station sign in the parking lot and drop off your donations before you come inside! If you’re attending services at South, please look for the donation cart at Crane welcome center, where you can drop off your donation with our volunteer.
The safety of the children we serve is our top priority, so anyone who volunteers with children or is a staff member (whether you work with children or not) at First Community is required to attend our Darkness to Light sexual abuse prevention training. Re-certification for staff or volunteers who work with children is required every three years.
