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. 

Eligible participants that live within the UCOM service area may sign up to receive supplemental commodities at UCOM. To complete an application clients must provide documentation of all household income. Enrollment is for a six month period. Enrollment in this program does not preclude participants from receiving additional support at UCOM. CSFP enrollees 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 2016 UCOM provided 729 CSFP services to 97 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.
