PROGRAM

SENIOR MOBILE PANTRY

FARSB implemented the Senior Mobile Pantry Program (SMPP)* to address the increased demand for older adults and other families in need of food assistance throughout the Inland Empire. SMPP focuses on serving not only low-income households with adults 60 years of age or older but also other low-income households (regardless of senior status or lack thereof) within both Riverside and San Bernardino counties through regularly scheduled food distribution programs. Food recipients are guaranteed to receive nutritious, healthy, and high-quality food kits at no cost through The Emergency Food Assistance Program (USDA/TEFAP). SMPP seeks to serve up to 2,000 households every month.

*CSFP will be transitioning to the Senior Mobile Pantry Program starting in October 2022. Please note that assistance is now ONE per Household and is open to all age categories.

ELIGIBILITY

Distribution participants must live within Riverside and San Bernardino counties and meet income guidelines. Both requirements are self-certified.
