Commodity Supplemental
Food Program

Would you like to receive free food?

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) provides individuals 60 and older with 30 pounds of commodity food items such as dry pasta, cereal, canned meats and vegetables, and cheese.*

  • Are you 60 or older?
  • Is your income under $1,245 per month for one or $1,680 for two?
  • Would you be able to pickup the food monthly at one of the pick up locations on the right?

If you said yes to all three then you may be able to receive a 30 pound box of food through the CSFP. Please print out an application form, complete it and return it to begin the process.

Please mail your completed application to:

Southern Maine Agency on Aging
Attention: CSFP
136 US Route One
Scarborough ME 04074

Concerned about making the pickup?

Complete a proxy form so that a family member, friend, or neighbor can pick up the food for you.
