The Senior Feeding Program is the USDA Commodity Supplemental Food Program for seniors over 60 years of age. The program ensures that seniors, who are some of the most vulnerable to hunger, get the basic nutrition necessary for good health. Recipients must be certified by our staff and once approved they can receive food every month. Seniors can either come to our warehouse to get the shelf stable commodity food items or we offer to deliver food directly to homebound seniors. Recipients also have access to our Extra Room to choose from additional perishable product we have. On a typical day, the room will contain fruits, vegetables, dairy, bakery goods and protein.
