Application (English and Spanish)
Supplemental Provision: Each month, CSFP participants receive a 25-30-pound box of shelf-stable groceries, valued at $60-$70, and a 2-pound block of commodity cheese to supplement their diets. Contents include canned fruits, vegetables, and animal proteins. There is also cereal and additional protein items like dry beans, peanut butter, grains, liquid milk, and dry milk on alternating months. Each item provided to CSFP clients is intended to be a healthy addition to meals they prepare at home when other food sources are running low.
Options for Homebound Seniors: Seniors who are homebound may assign a friend, family member, or care-taker to serve as a helper (called a proxy) to collect their food box on a monthly basis.
High Plains Food Bank CSFP Caseload: HPFB began administering CSFP in October 2017 and currently serves approximately 1,100 participants per month.
High Plains Food Bank is an equal opportunity provider.
