Recipients must be 60 years of age or older and have a gross monthly income at or below the guidelines provided. They must also be residents of Stark or Carroll County. People who participate in this program are still eligible for food help from the Minerva area pantries. Please bring an ID.
Each box contains: 4 cans of vegetables, 2 cans of fruit, 2 cartons of shelf-stable milk, 2 bottles of juice, 2 items of cereal, 1 can of beef stew or chili, 1 jar of peanut butter, 2 bags of pasta, and 2 lbs. of cheese.
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a federally funded program administered by the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
