To be eligible for distributions through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, households must be determined as categorically eligible (children under one year of age, children who have not yet reached their sixth birthday, pregnant women, breastfeeding women and 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. All other groups must be at 185% of the Federal Poverty Level or under. An applicant who receives Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Food Stamps (FS) or Medicaid is deemed income eligible for CSFP. Individuals cannot participate in both the WIC Program and the CSFP.
