The CalFresh program, formerly known as Food Stamps, helps low-income households purchase food. The program is run by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). In order to be eligible for CalFresh benefits, a household’s income must be at or below 130% of the federal poverty level.
CalFresh benefits are accessed through an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which is used as a debit card at grocery stores and other participating retailers. CalFresh benefits can be used to purchase food items such as:
-Bread and other grains
-Fruits and vegetables
-Meat, poultry, and fish
-Seeds and plants, which can be used to produce food for the household
CalFresh benefits can also be used to purchase food that will be eaten at a participating restaurant.
CalFresh benefits are issued on a monthly basis, and households must reapply for benefits every 6 or 12 months, depending on the household’s circumstances.
The CalFresh program is an important resource for low-income households in California. For more information about CalFresh, please explore our various articles on various topics.
