Purpose

Formerly called food stamps, CalFresh provides eligible households with an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card that works just like a debit card and can be used at most grocery stores and farmers markets to ensure access to healthy foods. CalFresh is a nutrition supplement and is not intended to meet a family’s entire food need.

Eligibility

Individual adults and families may qualify for nutrition assistance based on a number of factors including income and family size.
