Senior Box Program

The Senior Box Program is funded through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, a federal program designed to improve the health and nutrition of income eligible seniors. Seniors receive a box of food each month with a retail value of $50, which helps stretch their fixed incomes to keep food on the table.
