Commodity Supplemental Food Program for Senior Citizens (CSFP)

 

What is the Supplemental Food Program for Seniors (CSFP)?

 

  •  CSFP is a program administered by the KY Department of Agriculture and God’s Pantry Food  Bank for Kentucky residents, http://www.godspantry.org/
  •  The program provides a monthly food package to supplement the nutritional needs of low-income  senior citizens.

 

Who is eligible for CSFP?

  • Senior Citizens over the age of 60 at 130% of Federal Poverty Income Guidelines.
  • Monthly income cannot exceed $1,245 for a single-person household and cannot exceed $1,681 for a two-person household. For each additional household member, add $436.  
  • The client must be a Franklin County Resident.

 

What information must I have to apply?

  • Adults must bring personal identification such as driver’s license or birth certificate
  • Proof of Income is required for this program for each person in household.  Examples include a Social Security award letter, a copy of your Social Security check or check stub, a bank statement, a food stamp qualification document or a statement for the Housing Authority.

 

When can I apply for the program?

  • You can apply during the monthly pick up day or you may contact me to work out a time that is  convenient.  

 

What foods will CSFP participants receive each month?

  • Canned meat, canned fruit, juice, dry milk (every other month), canned vegetables, pasta, cereal and cheese. 
  • Occasionally other produce is provided.  

 

When can you pick up your food?

  • The delivery is made to us on the third Wednesday of the month and the pick-up will be the following Saturday morning from 9-10:30 a.m. (sometimes this falls on the third Saturday and sometimes the fourth).  
  • A newsletter is given out at each pick-up with the date listed for the next monthly pick-up.
