Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)
Seniors are one of our most vulnerable populations. At Second Harvest Heartland, we work hard to make sure the seniors in our community have the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active and productive lives. Through the Nutrition Assistance Program for Seniors (NAPS), Minnesota’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), Second Harvest Heartland provides a box of nutritious food each month to low-income seniors 60 years old and over. Program participants are given a box of highly nutritious food that may include canned fruits, vegetables and juices, milk, cheese, canned meat, peanut butter or dried beans, cereal, rice or pasta
- Qualifying participants must be low-income Minnesota residents: seniors at 130% poverty level.
- Participants are required to provide recently postmarked mail with name and address, knowledge of current gross monthly household income, and picture ID.
You can inquire about program registration through Second Harvest Heartland at the phone number below. CSFP satellite distribution centers are located at Second Harvest Heartland’s Maplewood location and at more than 240 other sites throughout Minnesota.
Please note: In Minnesota, CSFP is also referred to as the Nutrition Assistance Program for Seniors (NAPS)—both programs are the same!
If you think you may be eligible for CSFP/NAPS or know someone who may require assistance, please call 651-484-8241 (toll-free at 800-365-0270), or email email@example.com, for more information.
