Nourish is a Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) aims to increase health in individuals who are 60 years or older and have low income by providing nutritious food choices from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. New York Common Pantry is one of the three agencies statewide contracted to run this program, which allows seniors to receive food on a monthly basis. Food packages include a variety of foods, such as milk, juice, farina, oats, ready-to-eat cereal, rice, pasta, peanut butter, dry beans, canned meat, poultry or fish, and canned fruits and vegetables. Additional components of Nourish include guidance for preparing nutritious meals, dissemination of nutrition and health information by nutritionists, and referral to health care and social service agencies for other needed services. When at full capacity, Nourish will serve up to 80 + partner sites to expand food and nutrition services for low-income seniors living in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Westchester County.

Nourish is a Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) 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.
