CSFP or Senior Box
Please Note: The CSFP food boxes program is full. We are not taking applications for this program at this time.
THE COMMODITY SUPPLEMENTAL FOOD PROGRAM(CSFP) works to improve the health of low-income persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods. CSFP food packages do not provide a complete diet but are good sources of the nutrients typically lacking in the diets of the beneficiary population. 

The CSFP food box distribution is on the second Thursday of each month. Seniors must pick up their Sr. Box monthly to stay active in this program.

Applications and proof of income are required for this program.  

Donated Food Program
We partner with local grocery stores and restaurants to collect donated foods to supplement the weekly food distribution to our clients. 

Donated foods are available to anyone needing emergency food assistance who does not otherwise qualify for the TEFAP program. 

All foods are distributed on Thursday each week.  

Crisis food assistance is handled as needed by calling (839) 228-7691.
