The Senior Adult Food Program, formally known as the
Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is offered to qualifying senior adults, ages 60 years and older.
APPLICATION Participant Agreement Income Eligibility GuidelinesMonthly Food Distribution Schedule. Spring 2018 >>Supplemental Provision:
Each month, CSFP participants receive one 25-30-pound box of shelf-stable groceries valued at $60-$70, and a 2-pound block of commodity cheese, to supplement their diets. Items include cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, canned animal proteins, additional protein items such as dry beans and peanut butter, grains, liquid milk, and dry milk on alternating months. Each item provided to CSFP clients is intended to be a healthy addition to meals they prepare at home when other food sources are running low.
Options for Homebound Seniors: Seniors who are homebound have the option to assign a friend, family member, or care-taker to serve as a helper (called a proxy), to collect their food box on a monthly basis.
