Commodity Supplemental Food Program

In 2020, the CSFP served 17,769 food boxes in the 11-county area.

This is a monthly food-box program for income-eligible elders age 60 and older. This program’s food is provided by the USDA through the State of Kansas and may include such items as canned juice, fruit, vegetables, milk and meat, peanut butter or dry beans, cereal, macaroni or rice and 2 pounds of cheese for each family member who qualifies by age and income.

Open Door’s program is available in 11 Kansas counties: Butler, Chautauqua, Cowley, Harper, Harvey, Kingman,  Pratt, Reno, Sedgwick, Stafford and Sumner. If you live in a county other than those listed, you may visit Kansas Department of Children and Families

or contact Open Door’s CSFP Coordinator, at 316.267.0511.
