Current Employment Opportunities:

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a USDA-funded nutrition program that provides monthly food assistance to low-income seniors (aged 60-plus) through food banks. Selected counties throughout the US are targeted to offer the program to seniors. Through a competitive bid process, Ventura County was awarded approval to administer the program to an anticipated 3,500 seniors whose income is ≤130% of the Federal Poverty Level.

FOOD Share received confirmation of its “caseload” in mid-January, 2017, and will begin enrolling seniors and distributing food in early February. Based on the best practices of food banks in other counties who offer the program, the most successful recruitment and distribution methodology features a limited number of sites where many seniors concentrate, such as senior centers and senior housing complexes. Enrollment requires verification of identity, residence (though a utility bill, for example) and self-certification of income (no proof of income is required). Enrolled seniors will receive a box of shelf-stable food (canned fruits and vegetables, canned protein, dried beans, etc.) and a two-pound block of cheese (which requires refrigeration) each month. Each senior will need show ID at the time of distribution.

FOOD Share is working to develop a multi-sector collaborative team to implement CSFP across the county. Based on the experience of other food banks, FOOD Share may receive additional “caseload” in future years to expand the program to additional seniors.
