Food Assistance Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for distributions through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, households must be determined as categorically eligible (persons 60 years of age or older), meet income guidelines and meet residency requirements by living in one of the 31 counties distributing CSFP products.

To be income eligible, elderly, sixty years of age and older, must be at 130% of the Federal Poverty Level or under. An applicant who receives Food Stamps (FS) or Medicaid is deemed income eligible for CSFP. Individuals cannot participate in both the WIC Program and the CSFP or participate at more than one CSFP location in any month.
