Commodity Supplemental Food Program
Through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), the USDA provides nutritious commodities to help State and Local agencies meet the nutritional needs of low-income elderly persons. Through local agencies, each participant receives a monthly package of commodiites, based on food package guide rates developed by FNS, with input from State and Local agencies. Food packages include such nutritious foods as cereal, juices, canned fruits, and vegetables, canned meat or poultry and other protein items, and grain products such as pasta, as well as other foods. Participants all receive nutrtion education.
CSFP participants receive a 40 lb. box of food once a month. Boxes are currently distributed to elderly residents in Blackford, Randolph, and Wabash Counties. Our hope is to expand the program into the other counties we serve.
