Expanded food program available to low-income residents

The Utah Department of Health says an expanded supplemental food program will ensure more low-income residents have access to healthy food. The Commodity Supplemental Food Program will provide services to children up to age 6 and adults over the age of 60. Those groups are not covered under WIC, the Women, Infants and children program. Under the program, the U.S. Department of Agriculture will ship food to the Utah food Bank for distribution to eligible participants. Packages will include canned beans, fruits, vegetables, cold cereal, dried milk and bottled juice. Eligibility is determined by age, income and state residency.
