Senior Servings identifies and assists senior citizens who are at the highest risk of hunger. This program provides nutritious food to seniors who are 60 years and older and at-risk of hunger. By partnering with low-income senior housing complexes, senior centers and congregate meal sites, the program provides a level of independence and dignity for clients.
CSFP (Commodity Supplemental Food Program)
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is an USDA senior feeding program that provides shelf-stable food packages to low-income adults over the age of 60. Each box holds approximately 30 lbs. of shelf-stable grocery items and is accompanied by a 2-lb. block of commodity cheese. The program is facilitated through 13 sites in 12 counties, which allows us to serve 906 seniors every month. If you are in the Tulsa area and would like to apply to be a recipient, please click here to fill out the application.
