What you need to know

​​The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program which provides foods purchased and distributed by the USDA.

Proper nutrition is important in maintaining the health of senior citizens. It is for this reason that we provide commodity foods.

You could be eligible, if you are 60 years and over.

To see if you meet the federal and state guidelines for the program bring:

  • Proof of income (i.e. bank statement or social security letter)
  • Birth certificates (If birth certificate is unavailable, some document verifying age must be provided)
  • Proof of residence -- either a letter post marked within the last 30 days, or a utility bill with date and address on it.
  • Proof of lawful immigration status (i.e. permanent resident card)

Help is available in learning to use the commodity foods.

All commodity foods are specially purchased by the USDA. Except for the cheese, they need not be refrigerated until they have been opened.
