Monthly Food Boxes Distributed to Low Income Seniors
The CSFP provides those of us who are low-income seniors, age 60 and older, with extra food each month. This program improves the health of eligible participants by supplementing our diets with nutritious USDA foods.
Food packages may include a variety of foods, such as nonfat milk, cheese, juice, farina, oats, ready-to-eat cereal, rice, pasta, peanut butter, dry beans, canned meat, poultry, or fish, canned fruits and vegetables.
ICOA partners with the Idaho Foodbank (IFB) who delivers food boxes to low income seniors each month. The IFB determines the eligibility of applicants, distributes the foods, and provides nutrition education.
