CalFresh (formerly known as Food Stamps)

Want to get more food for your family? CalFresh can help put food on the table.

The CalFresh Program, also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), can help stretch a tight food budget to keep you and your family well-fed and healthy. Participants can get monthly electronic benefits that can be used to buy most foods at farmers' markets and in food stores.
