The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) works with food banks, like Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland (FAKH) to help people experiencing poverty and food insecurity make ends meet.
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a monthly programs available to seniors (60+) experiencing hunger in our service area that fall within a certain income range. The monthly CSFP boxes distributed to seniors typically contain shelf stable products, such as vegetables, cereal, dehydrated milk, oats and more. FAKH and our network of agency partners are required to ask individuals looking to enroll in the Commodity Supplemental Food Program questions about their monthly income and the number of people in their household.
Below is a graphic that shows the current CSFP income guidelines. The graphic breaks down the monthly income limit for households having up to eight people. For households with more than eight people simply add $6,994 to your annual income or $583 to your monthly income for each additional person in the household.
