Senior Boxes

Senior Boxes are formally called the PA Senior Food Box Program. This program is the only USDA nutrition program that provides monthly food assistance targeted at low‐income seniors. The program supplements seniors’ diets with a monthly package of nutritious USDA commodities. PA Senior Food Box Program serves individuals aged 60 and over with incomes of less than 130 percent of the Federal Poverty Guideline—helping to prevent vulnerable seniors from having to choose between food and other basic needs.

Included in the box you’ll find a variety of canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, beans, cereal, pasta, bottled juice, shelf-stable milk, canned meat and 2 pounds of cheese. The boxes are distributed though neighborhood sites, so contact us to find the site closest to you. Click here to view the PA Senior Food Box Program flyer!

PA Senior Food Box Program is an equal opportunity provider.
