To be eligible, seniors need to be 60-years-old or older, have a New York state address and meet financial eligibility requirements.  Most seniors who qualify for SNAP will be eligible for Nourish.  Once a senior is signed up, they can receive a food package on a monthly basis.  These packages include cheese, shelf-stable milk, canned fruits and vegetables, dried fruits, canned meats and fish, breakfast cereals, fruit juices, rice, whole grain pasta, peanut butter, and dried and canned 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 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.
