CSFP Information

Senior Food Program

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) provides supplemental, nutritious food to low-income senior adults. Over 2000 seniors, ages 60 and over, who meet USDA Income Eligibility Guidelines receive a 25–30-pound box of shelf-stable groceries and a 2-pound block of commodity cheese to supplement their diets. Contents included canned fruits, vegetables, and animal proteins. Boxes also include the following on a rotating basis: cereal and additional protein items like dry beans, peanut butter, grains, liquid milk, and dry milk. These boxes have an estimated value of $60-$70 and are provided free of charge to our clients. 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 may 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. Click here to download a proxy form.

High Plains Food Bank is an equal opportunity provider.

As per [7 CFR 247.8]: To apply for CSFP benefits, the applicant or caretaker of the applicant must provide the following information on the application: name, age, address, and household income.

Texas Department of Agriculture has revised our current CSFP handbook Section 4000 and directions to our participant application (Form 1504) to state: Applicants are required to provide valid proof of identification; however, applicants are not required to provide proof of income. The applicant is now able to self declare their income when certifying for CSFP. This guidance is effective immediately.
