Community Table partners with the USDA Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) and the Food Bank of the Rockies to provide once a month food assistance to low income seniors. Effective November 1, 2019, changes will be made to the food package to provide participants with more food and more variety, and to better align with ChooseMyPlate.gov and current nutrition guidelines.
In the enhanced monthly food package, some of the changes will include:
• Double the amount of vegetables
• More protein, including plant-based proteins such as canned and dry beans
• More options within each food category, such as brown rice and soup
• Smaller package sizes of rice, oatmeal, grits, dry beans, and non-fat dried milk that are more appropriate for small households and that allow participants to receive a greater variety of options in their food package each month

Food boxes are distributed the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM.
To receive food through this program a client must live within the service area and bring in a picture ID and a piece of mail dated within the last 30 days.
