- Message about the Commodity Supplemental Food Program
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program will continue to be available for the Elderly (60 and over and those who meet the financial guidelines). This program will continue on the usual schedule at this time. The doors will be locked. We ask you to call 719-672-3452. We will instruct you on the procedure to receive your food box. We must limit the number of people who come in the office at one time. We strongly recommend if you are over 60, or have underlying medical conditions that increase your risk of serious COVID-19 that you have someone pick up your food box for you. Please call the office to let us know who is picking up your food box. Our goal is to continue to provide this much needed food package. Situations are changing rapidly so please call before you come to the CSFP office to find out if we are currently distribution commodities.
Please call 719-672-3332 for more information.
