To be eligible, seniors need to be 60-years-old or older, have a New York state address and meet financial eligibility requirement. Most seniors who qualify for SNAP will be eligible for Nourish. Once a senior is signed up, they can pick up a food package on a monthly basis. These packages include cheese, non-fat dry milk, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats and fish, breakfast cereals, fruit juices, rice, whole grain pasta, peanut butter, and dried beans.
Nourish also provides guidance in preparing nutritious meals, including cooking demonstrations, nutrition and health information, and referrals to health care and social services agencies.
Nourish is a Commodity Supplementary Food Program funded by the USDA and NYS Department of Health. CSFP is an equal opportunity provider. Please see the USDA Non-Discrimination Statement at https://www.health.ny.gov/prevention/nutrition/csfp/docs/usda_non-discrimination_statement.pdf
