TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Food Finders has a chance to be part of a pilot program helping seniors citizens get enough to eat.

But to bring it to Tippecanoe County, they need anyone interested to sign up ahead of time.

The Commodity Supplemental Food program is open to people in need over the age of 60. It offers 20 to 40 pounds of non-perishable food to each enrolled home per month.

Food Finders will be at Jenks Rest in Columbian Park to help people sign up Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Anyone interested should bring a photo ID and proof of income.
