Cause and Effects: Commodity Supplemental Food Program

October 15, 2014 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

Seniors are one of the fastest-growing populations that Second Harvest Heartland serves: visits by seniors to Second Harvest Heartland’s food shelf partners have increased more than 60 percent since 2008. Many seniors are on fixed incomes and are faced with making tough decisions between food and other necessities.

The USDA’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), administered by Second Harvest Heartland
in the food bank’s service area, provides a monthly box of wholesome food to more than 9,000 seniors in
Minnesota. This year, we opened 15 NEW DISTRIBUTION SITES, and continue working to better serve
underrepresented areas in the metro area and parts of greater Minnesota.
