Commodity Supplemental Food Programs
The USDA's federally funded Commodity Supplemental Food Programs (CSFP) is now available to seniors 60 years and older who meet certain income requirements. Seniors are encouraged to register for CSFP by June 1. CSFP provides nutritious USDA commodity foods - canned vegetables, fruits and meats; fruit juices; dried beans- to the elderly.

Tool or Gardening Product

Corona Professional ErgoArc Bypass Pruner
This Corona has the basics, good value, and more. It's light and fits my hand comfortably. Most pruners don't. My helper Mary appreciates the extras - a squeeze-and-release lock, a bag clipper and wire cutter atop the blade, ergonomic design for easier handling, and nice balance. Cuts up to 1" branch. Comes with a lifetime warranty and at about $29, fits most budgets.
