Commodity Supplemental Food Program
Commodity Program Overview
The cost of everything is rising and groceries are no exception.  With the increase in prices, some Seniors are left wondering how they can stretch their budget while still getting the nutrition they need to continue living a healthy and active life.  The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) may be able to help.

The CSFP is a Federally funded program, which works to improve the health of the elderly by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA commodity foods.  The Program does not provide a complete diet but does provide you with many of your pantry staples.  A typical package will include grains, juice, canned meat, poultry or fish, and fruits and vegetables.


Food Distribution
Food is distributed bi-monthly to eligible recipients.  Watch your local newspapers or our calendar for the date and time.  Food can be picked up at the Nutter Building (W. Main St, Sidney) or delivered to your door if you are housebound.
