COMMODITY SUPPLEMENTAL FOOD PROGRAM (CSFP)

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a senior food assistance program. Each month, Wayside collaborates with food pantries, community groups, places of worship and local housing authorities to provide eligible aging adults with a free 30-pound box of food. In 2019, Wayside Food Programs shared food with 2,700 seniors each month in 3 counties.
 
**All senior food box distributions in Oxford and York County are currently open as scheduled. If you receive your senior food box at a food pantry, please make sure to check the status of the pantry first. Many updated food pantry statuses can be found at this link. We are working closely with our partners to determine any further decisions and are taking extra precautions to ensure all community members are receiving their food in a healthy and safe manner.**
