The LA Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)

The LA Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)


All residents of Louisiana who meet the income requirements and the other eligibility requirements listed above may participate in CSFP. Currently, CSFP operates food distribution operations in every parish in the State, with the exceptions of Plaquemines and Saint Bernard Parishes (as these parishes’ populations return during the post-Katrina and post-Rita period, food distribution services will be resumed when and where appropriate. Residents of these parishes are allowed to participate in CSFP if they are able to travel to a food site in another parish. Persons who are interested in doing so should contact Food For Families/Food For Seniors at one of the telephone numbers listed below.

If you are a senior citizen and are unable to travel to one of our food sites, or lack friends, family, or neighbors who can go get your food box for you, you may be eligible for a volunteer to deliver your monthly food box to your home. Contact Food For Families/Food For Seniors to learn whether you are eligible for this service.

How Do I Sign Up for CSFP?

Call Food For Families/Food For Seniors on their toll-free line: 1-800-522-3333 or 1-225-357-9099. They will tell you where the closest food site to your home is, what the serving days and times are, and they will tell you if your household income qualifies you to be part of the program.
When you go to get registered at a food site, you will need to bring:

Proof of your address (such as a utility bill, phone bill, or driver’s license)
Proof of your income (such as a check stub, award letter from Social Security or SSI, or check stub from one of those programs)
