The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), otherwise known as the Senior Food Box Program, was first launched in April 2015. Hawaii is one of the U.S. states that participates in CSFP to distribute food boxes to improve the health of seniors with low income. Boxes contain supplemental foods such as nonfat dry milk and/or UHT milk, cheese, cereal, juice, peanut butter, rice, canned meat, fruits and vegetables.More than 2,000 seniors on Oahu and Kauai qualified for CSFP during the last year. Collectively, they received more than 16,000 senior food boxes.
Applicants must be residents of the City and County of Honolulu, at least 60 years of age at the time of applying, and meet the monthly household income guidelines (Please see the application for current monthly household income guidelines). Certified participants are eligible to receive one box per month.
