NDA seeking applications for southern Nevada CSFP partner

Applications due Aug. 13, 2021

Sparks, Nev. August 04, 2021

The Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) is seeking partners in southern Nevada to implement the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). CSFP is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program that provides supplemental foods to income-eligible, seniors of at least 60 years of age. One partner will be awarded funds to provide USDA foods to eligible seniors in southern Nevada.


“Last year CSFP partners served an average of 6,500 seniors per month,” said NDA Food and Nutrition Division Administrator Homa Anooshehpoor. “We are looking for a partner who can help us continue to meet the needs of our food-insecure senior population.”


The NDA is requesting formal applications from non-profit agencies for the provision of CSFP food and services in the southern Nevada region. This region encompasses the greater Las Vegas area and surrounding rural communities south of Tonopah. While it is not required that CSFP services be offered in every county and community, the ability to provide CSFP services in rural communities will be considered an asset in the selection process. Applicants must have the ability to accept, store and distribute approximately 5,000 CSFP food packages per month.


Organizations interested in providing CSFP services in southern Nevada are encouraged to review and submit an application at agri.nv.gov by 5:00 p.m. (PDT) on Aug. 13, 2021.
