What is CalFresh?

CalFresh is the state food stamps program that provides assistance for low or no income individuals and households to purchase nutritious food. CalFresh is known federally as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

CalFresh issues monthly benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, similar to an ATM card, to purchase food at retail stores and farmers markets that accept EBT cards.

The monthly benefit amount is based on a person's or household's income, expenses, and household size.
