The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a federally funded program that provides nutritious food supplements for eligible recipients. On February 7, 2014, President Obama signed the Farm Bill into law amending the CSFP eligibility requirements to a low income senior's only program. As a result, the CDE is working with CSFP agencies on phasing out the participation of women, infants, and children. The CSFP is currently operated in California by the San Diego Food Bank, San Francisco Food Bank, Community Action Partnership of Orange County, Redwood Empire Food Bank, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and The Modesto Love Center.
