CSFP Program
Example of food available in a typical CSFP box. Note that items and brands may vary.

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) works to improve the health of low-income persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods. USDA distributes both food and administrative funds to participating states and Indian Tribal Organizations to operate CSFP.

Food Bank of the Albemarle has on-site staff to assist you with applying for this program. The CSFP program food is available in addition to food that you may receive from your normal food pantry distribution.
