FNS hosted a webinar to provide state agencies and food banks with information about how TEFAP can support cultural and religious practices around food, particularly those serving kosher and halal observant communities. The webinar featured panelists from state agencies and food banks who have successfully implemented processes to serve these specific communities. They shared best practices about how to operationalize the process and the impact on storage, staffing, and distribution efforts. FNS has identified panelists that exhibit innovative and supportive practices that address the needs of kosher and halal observant communities through TEFAP to present on the webinar. FNS used this webinar as an opportunity to further engage TEFAP stakeholders and help them establish next steps that can be implemented to better serve these communities.
