Newsroom SRS seeks to help low-income Kansans meet nutritional needs
5/27/2008

Topeka – The Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services (SRS) has over 300 slots available for low income seniors, women, infants and children who could receive a free monthly food package.  The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) provides a free monthly food package to eligible families.  Each package is valued at about $50 and contains approximately 20 or more food items including cheese.


While Kansans continue to face increasing food costs, SRS wants to raise awareness of this valuable program to provide nutrition assistance to qualifying families.  The CSFP is currently administered in 23 Kansas counties through three local agencies.  Participants must reside in one of the 23 counties to qualify. 


 The program provides benefits to seniors aged 60 years and over with income up to 130% of the federal poverty level.  Women and children up to age 6 not receiving WIC vouchers with income up to 185% of the federal poverty level may also be eligible.  For information on applying for the program, please contact:
