The Commodity Supplemental Food Program provides monthly food kits for low-income seniors.
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program which provides monthly food kits to seniors.
In 2017, the Food Bank distributed 320,326 food kits (9,446,729 pounds of food) through CSFP to an average of 27,000 seniors every month at 145 sites throughout Los Angeles County.
Each kit weighs approximately 30 pounds and contains mostly shelf-stable staples such as milk, beans, grains and canned fruits and vegetables.
We are proud to facilitate the largest CSFP in the country and eternally grateful for the dedicated volunteers who make this work possible.
