The Rocky Mountain Development Council, Inc. (Rocky) will have supplemental foods available for Augusta area seniors on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 from 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm at the Augusta Senior Center (134 Main Street). There is no charge for the food.
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a program where seniors can receive regular allocations of free food every other month. The program guidelines mandate that the person receiving the food must be 60 years of age or older, a resident of Montana, and meet an income requirement. Food typically consists of canned fruit, vegetables, meats, juice, cereals, dry milk, shelf stable milk, cheese, pasta or beans, and peanut butter.
Persons 60+ will be certified to receive the food based on income and residency eligibility. For further information or questions, call Rocky at 406-447-1680.
