Federally known as the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program, CalFresh supports the food needs of low-income households by providing a free food debit card. Individuals in the program receive a monthly food subsidy on their card and can use it to purchase groceries from participating grocery stores and farmer’s markets. They can also purchase seeds and plants that produce food.
Our Success Coaches and Client Intake Specialists screen individuals to determine if they are eligible for the program and provide assistance with onsite application, document submission, and renewal. Families should be aware that it can take up to 30 days after you turn in your application to receive benefits.
