Are you a senior citizen at least 60 years of age on a fixed income?
Having to choose between groceries and medication, or other bills each month?
The Senior Box Program, a USDA Commodity Supplemental Food Program through Feeding South Dakota, distributes free food to limited income senior citizens.

The boxes average 25 to 27 pounds of food and contain a minimum: 2-lb block of cheese, juice, shelf-stable or powdered milk, cereal, canned fruits, canned vegetables, pasta or rice, a canned meat or entrée such as beef stew or chili.
