What is a Commodity Supplemental Food Program?

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program works to improve the health of low-income elderly persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods.  

A variety of foods provided to participants through this program are nonfat dry milk, juice oats ready to eat cereal, rice, pasta peanut butter, dry beans, canned meat, poultry, or fish and canned fruits and vegetables.

For participating seniors, CSFP offers more than just food and nourishment. It also helps combat the poor health conditions often found in seniors who experience food insecurity. CSFP food packages are specifically designed to supplement nutrients typically lacking in participants’ diets. These healthy foods help seniors avoid costly hospitalizations and nursing home placements.
