Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)

Do you know someone age 60 or older who struggles with food insecurity? The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) may be able to provide additional help. Single people age 60 and over making less than $1174 or families of two making less than $1579 are eligible for these benefits. For households of more than two add an additional $406 per person to determine income qualification limits.

To complete an application clients must provide documentation of all household income. Enrollment is for a one year period. Participants receive a monthly pre-packed food box which typically includes the following items:

  • Cereal
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Fruit
  • Canned meats and/or peanut butter
  • Juices
  • Pasta and/or rice
  • Canned milk
  • Cheese

In 2010 UCOM provided 622 CSFP services to 73 different households. Food boxes are available at UCOM or for those unable to pick up their boxes delivery may be available.


In operation of the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, no one will be discriminated against because of race, color, national origin, sex, age or ability.  Any person who believes he or she has been discriminated against in any USDA-related activity should write to Secretary of Agriculture, Washington DC 20520.
