The Commodity Supplemental Food Program provides monthly food kits for low-income seniors.
In 2020, the Food Bank distributed over 311,000 Senior Nutrition food kits through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). These went to an average of almost 28,000 seniors every month at 146 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.
CSFP is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program which provides monthly food kits to seniors.
There are thousands of seniors who benefit from the Food Bank’s CSFP each month. Read stories about the Food Bank’s work, including our work with older adults, on our blog.
