Get Healthy Foods with CalFresh!
CalFresh (formerly known as Food Stamps) is a nutrition assistance program which helps individuals and families purchase healthy foods. CalFresh benefits are issued on an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card- like an ATM card. You can use your EBT card at most grocery stores, neighborhood stores and farmer’s markets.
Call us at (707) 523-7903 to apply for CalFresh!
You are NOT eligible for CalFresh benefits if you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI/SSP) but Social Security Retirement Benefits are ok. If you receive SSI benefits, other family members may still be eligible. You can have income from a full or part time job, unemployment, or other cash assistance. US Citizens, some Legal Permanent Residents, and people with U-Visa’s and T-Visa’s may qualify. Parents who do not have a valid Social Security Number can apply for their U.S. born children. Applying for CalFresh is easy: We will need your Identification, Social Security Numbers, and Income Verification.
