SENIOR GROCERY PROGRAMS
The program provides senior citizens living on a fixed income with supplemental staple groceries on a monthly basis to help fight hunger and malnutrition for our elderly neighbors.
Project HOPE provides approximately 50-60 pounds of food to seniors each month. Food is chosen to accommodate the special dietary needs of the senior population and includes produce, protein, whole grains and staples that will help the seniors live healthy and independent lives.
Project HOPE Distribution Centers are located throughout the San Antonio area. To find a center near you, download this Project HOPE Distribution Centers List.

COMMODITY SUPPLEMENTAL FOOD PROGRAM (CSFP)
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) aims to improve the health and nutritional well-being of elderly individuals, 60 years and older, who are vulnerable to malnutrition and are income eligible.
The USDA provides approved USDA Food for grocery packages that are used for home consumption. The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) administers the CSFP through contracts with individual food banks and provides oversight of their operations. Local organizations distribute the food packages and provide nutrition education to more than 34,000 eligible participants through an agreement with their respected food banks.
For more information about CSFP, please contact:
The San Antonio Food Bank is a partner of the TDA and administers the program through selected senior program sites. Currently, the San Antonio Food Bank administers the entire caseload as allocated from the state. Seniors can register to be on a waiting list to receive CSFP if more caseload becomes available.
