The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), also known as Senior Boxes, works to improve the health of low-income persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods.
Currently this program is supporting 1,404 seniors in need.
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a USDA nutrition program that provides monthly food assistance specially targeted to low-income seniors. Seniors complete an application for the program and will receive notice of eligibility and approval. Participants will then be assigned to either pick up their monthly CSFP food package at a local sponsor, have an authorized person pick up their food package, or have the food package directly delivered to their home via a participating partner agency if available.
The program is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of participants, supplementing diets with a monthly package of healthy, nutritious USDA food. Nationally, one in twelve senior households are at risk of hunger. CSFP prevents vulnerable seniors from having to choose between food and other basic needs, like medicine, housing, or utilities.
