What is CalFresh?

CalFresh is for people with low-income who meet federal income eligibility rules and want to add to their budget to put healthy and nutritious food on the table.

Is CalFresh right for my family?

CalFresh can help your family get access to healthy food. You can use CalFresh benefits at most grocery stores and even Farmer's Markets to buy items such as bread, nuts, rice, and more.

Who is eligible for CalFresh?

CalFresh is open to families who are U.S. Citizens and legal residents. It's also open to people with a qualified immigration status. People 60+ and disabled persons may have a higher income and still qualify.
