It is recommended that low-income seniors enroll in both the weekly food distribution and monthly Supplemental Food Program for maximum food assistance.
Monthly Supplemental Food Program (SFP) for low income seniors (60+ years old)
Provides a monthly box of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) food to low-income seniors. If someone enrolled in the program misses their usual distribution day, they can pick up food from a different location. Food boxes include a variety of foods, including tuna, rice, cheese, pasta, and peanut butter. Participants receive approximately 30 pounds of food each month.
ENROLLED PARTICIPANTS MUST BRING IDENTIFICATION AND PROGRAM CARD TO RECEIVE A FOOD BOX. PROGRAM APPLICANTS WILL RECEIVE FOOD ON THE DAY THEY APPLY AS LONG AS THEY SHOW PROOF OF MEETING PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY.
Intake and Eligibility: Must be a Bay Area resident of San Francisco, Marin, San Mateo or Alameda County, who is at least 60 years of age with income at or below 130% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines (listed below).
