Women and Children Aren’t Always First

WASHINGTON (CN) - Women, infants, and children no longer will get priority over the elderly in receiving food from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Commodity Supplemental Food Program.

The applicants will be treated equally due to the enactment of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008, and the corresponding amendments to the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service's regulations.

The CSFP distributes food collected under farm subsidy programs to certain groups of impoverished people.
