Commodity Supplemental Food Program
What is Commodity Supplemental Food Program?
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) works to improve the health of low-income elderly persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious, 100 percent domestic USDA Foods.
CSFP is administered at the Federal level by the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Through CSFP, USDA distributes both food and administrative funds to participating States and Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs). CSFP food packages are not intended to comprise a complete diet, but rather are good sources of the nutrients typically lacking in the diets of the target population.
Who is eligible for Commodity Supplemental Food Program?
In order to be eligible for this program, you must be:
· Over 60 years of age
· At or below 130 percent of Federal poverty income guidelines
States may require that participants be at nutritional risk, as determined by a physician or local agency staff. States may also require that an individual resides within the service area of the local agency at the time they apply for program benefits. However, States may not require that the individual resides within the area for any fixed period of time.
