New Fulton County program offers food aid to elderly

Monthly food packages are available through a new Fulton County program for residents age 60 or older and whose total monthly income is $1,178 or less.

The Commodity Supplemental Food Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture provides eligible persons with six-month refillable prescriptions for food.

The 40 to 50-pound packages contain a combination of fruit juices, canned fruit, canned vegetables, unsweetened cereal, pastas, evaporated milk, dry milk, cheese, canned meat, dry beans, and peanut butter.

More information is available by calling the Fulton County Senior Programs, 419-337-9299, or the Toledo Seagate Food Bank of Northwest Ohio, 419-244-6996.
