SUNShine Boxes are Second Harvest Food Bank’s distribution of food through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), a federally-funded program that is designed to improve the health and nutrition of low-income senior citizens, post-partum mothers, and children. A supply of staple foods, provided by the USDA, are packed into boxes and distributed once a month to registered participants. The boxes contain cereal, juice, canned vegetables and fruit, evaporated milk, pasta, peanut butter, protein (beef, chicken, or tuna), and cheese.
Currently, Second Harvest serves 2,475 individuals each month. We rely on a dedicated group of volunteers to pack the SUNShine boxes each month.
Open registration for the SUNShine Box program begins in March.
