Oklahoma continues to rank among the top ten states in the nation for food insecurity among seniors. With roughly 700,000 seniors, age 60 + living in Oklahoma, 1 in 11, are threatened by hunger.
Commodity Box Program
Through a partnership with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, RSVP of Enid distributes 277 commodity boxes each month to seniors in North Central and Western Oklahoma. To qualify, you must be 60 or over and make less than $1,383 per month for a household of 1. Each box contains about 40lbs of non-perishable items such as: nonfat dairy and ultra-high temperature fluid milk, juice, oats, ready-to-eat cereal, rice, pasta, peanut butter, dry beans, canned meat, poultry or fish, and canned fruits and vegetable. Each box also comes with a 2lb block of cheese and fresh fruits and vegetables when they are available. Commodity boxes can be picked up each month at the Senior Social Center located at 202 W. Walnut and for home bound seniors we can deliver right to your doorstep. We also deliver to Civitan, Meadow's Point, La Mesa, and Clay Hall Apartments.
