The Senate has not yet completed work on their version of the Economic Recovery Bill. The House did not include any money for The Commodity Supplemental Food Programs (CSFP).
The Commodity Supplemental Food Programs (CSFP) is a Federally funded program, which works to improve the health of low-income pregnant and breastfeeding women, other new mothers up to one year postpartum, infants, children up to age six, and elderly people at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA commodity foods. It provides food and administrative funds to States to supplement the diets of these groups.
This will be our last chance to be included in the bill. Call your Senators right now and ask them to include $30 million for CSFP. We have more seniors that need our program than we can currently provide for.
