CalFresh

CalFresh, 877-410-8809

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.

  • Applications and interviews can be completed over the phone
  • EBT cards make benefits easier than ever to access
  • Property ownership no longer affects your ability to receive CalFresh.
