|Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)
The USDA’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) provides senior citizens with nutritious food. In partnership with Southeast Missouri Food Bank, the Missouri Department of Health will serve 2,600 people in Southeast Missouri. National figures indicate that 80% of those served will be senior citizens. Participants who meet income guidelines will receive a monthly food package that includes items such as canned meat, vegetables, fruits, fruit juices, potatoes, and hot and cold cereal. According to the USDA, these packages do not provide a complete diet but provide a good source of nutrients typically lacking in the diets of senior citizens.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
