Senior food program taking applications



Jackson County people 60 and older should have another option when it comes to finding affordable, nutritious groceries.

Aging and Community Services recently began offering the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, which allows people 60 and older the chance to qualify for a free monthly food package.

The program presently has 10 openings, said Carol Gee, director of the Agency on Aging meal site for senior citizens at Seymour. That program is administered by Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana as part of the state’s Commodity Supplemental Food and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Foods

programs.
