Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)
What is the CSFP Program?
The New York State Department of Health's Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) offers free, nutritious foods to seniors aged 60 years of age and older, and to some women and children that are not eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program. In 2011, the number of people participating in CSFP was approximately 34,000 monthly. Additionally, in 2011 over 22,000 senior families enrolled in CSFP received benefits to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers' markets through the Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program.
CSFP is available in New York City and Long Island only.
The program's goal is to ensure that participants receive adequate nutritious foods.
