Can my criminal history limit my ability to get EFAP?
No. You will be able to get EFAP food benefits no matter your criminal history. Only two factors matter—where you live and how much income you have. Even if your address falls outside of an EFAP food bank’s service area, you might still be able to get food there, if you can prove that you live in the same county. But there is also the possibility that the food bank turns you away and asks that you go to the food bank that serves the area where you live.
MORE INFO ON THE WIC INTAKE PROESS
During the WIC intake process, a county health professional will determine if you or your child are “at nutritional risk” (meaning your child is over/underweight or not eating enough fruits or vegetables), and may make a referral to a doctor if any health conditions (for example, anemia) are suspected.
