CSFP – Commodity Supplemental Food Program
The USDA Commodities Program is designed to aid the most vulnerable populations in our community. The program serves seniors over 60 and participants receive various nutritional products including milk, fruit, vegetables, juice and cereal, etc. In our last fiscal year we distributed 29,851 nutritional food packages throughout Weld County.
Anyone who is interested in receiving commodities must first meet with a member of our certification staff. Potential clients must show ID, proof of address and proof of income. After the original application, clients need to recertify every six months. Once certified, a client can visit the food bank once a month to pick up their commodities. In addition to the shelf stable items provided through the USDA, our clients all visit the “extra room.” This room is where we have many of the perishable donated food items available to our clients. On a typical day, the "extra room" will contain onions, potatoes, various other produce, bakery goods and other food items.
The following food items will always be available:
1% UHT Milk
Dry Milk, every other month
