Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) / Stockbox
What is it?
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program, known locally as Stockbox, provides a box of supplementary food to low-income seniors every month. Hunger Task Force delivers
nearly 9,000 stockboxes each month at local senior centers and subsidized housing sites.
Why is it important?
The Stockbox program is important because it provides healthy, shelf-stable foods to low-income seniors across the state. Senior hunger and complications that arise from senior hunger are real due to low-income and having a poor diet. The Stockbox can help by playing an important role by providing nutritious foods, which can ultimately improve the health status of these individuals.
Who is eligible?
Seniors age 60+ and who meet a monthly income requirement depending on their household size may be eligible to receive a monthly Stockbox. More information and eligibility rules can be found here.
