The Southeast Texas Food Bank has been selected as a contractor for the federal Commodity Supplemental Food Program (Senior Food Box Program) to distribute 2,000 boxes of food to qualifying seniors each month. We are currently engaged in the enrollment process to identify up to 2,000 qualifying seniors and to develop a waiting list of seniors for future food distributions of these boxes.
Seniors who are 60 or older and whose income level is 130 percent or less of the federal poverty level for their household size are eligible to enroll.
