Improving the Senior Adult Experience
The Commodity Food Supplemental Program (CSFP) exists to improve the health of low-income elderly persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods. The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank (JCSDFB) has a robust CSFP program, serving thousands of seniors monthly. One year ago, JCSDFB and Oasis Insight pioneered improved technology for CSFP customer intake and food distribution, certification and recertification. Learn about the development, implementation and initial outcomes and how it has greatly improved the process and experience for seniors, staff and volunteers. If you work with seniors and/or food distribution in any way, this webinar is for you!
