COMMODITY SUPPLEMENTAL FOOD PROGRAM (CSFP)

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) works to improve the health of low-income seniors by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods. In Pennsylvania, eligible participants include low-income individuals who are at least 60 years old and whose household income is at or below 130 percent of the U.S. poverty level.

CSFP food packages do not provide a complete diet, but rather are good sources of the nutrients typically lacking in the diets of older Americans. Among the types of foods included in the food packages are: non-fat dry and evaporated milk, juice, grains, pasta, proteins, and canned fruits and vegetables. The USDA purchases the food and makes it available to the Bureau of Food Distribution, which works with local non-profit agencies to facilitate distribution of the monthly food boxes to eligible participants
