The Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency (UCHRA) would like to remind those who receive commodities that it is time for recertification of their commodities card. With deliveries right around the corner, it is very important for recipients to renew with their local county offices prior to the first pick-up date.
The Temporary Emergency Food Assistance Program, known as commodities, served over 442 tons of food to the 14 county area covered by UCHRA in the 2009-2010 fiscal year. The need will be even greater this year as those who have become unemployed will be seeking relief.
If you think you or someone you know qualifies for the commodities program, please contact the UCHRA office in your county for more information.
The UCHRA telephone numbers are as follows: Cannon County 615-563-2916, Clay County 931-243-3674, Cumberland County 931-456-0691, DeKalb County 615-597-4504, Fentress County 931-879-8040, Jackson County 931-268-9840, Macon County 615-666-3377, Overton County 931-823-7323, Pickett County 931-864-6540, Putnam County 931-528-1285, Smith County 615-735-0476, Van Buren County 931-946-7151 or 423-881-5669, Warren County 931-473-6652, and White County 931-738-6255.
