About This Program

The Senior Boxes program, also known as the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and provides low-income seniors with a healthy variety of supplemental food items each month, reducing the amount of money they would need to spend on groceries.

To qualify for the program, you must be 60 or older and meet a monthly income requirement of 130% at or below the federal poverty level, so $1,353 for one person or $1,832 for 2 people.

Items in the box include:

  • Canned fruit
  • Low-sodium canned vegetables
  • Fruit juice
  • Canned chicken, tuna, salmon, or beef
  • Peanut butter
  • Dried beans
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Grains (flour, cornmeal, rolled oats, rice, pasta)
  • Cereal
  • Low-sodium soups
  • And more!
