What is CalFresh?
CalFresh is a benefit program to help low-income people buy the food they need for good health. CalFresh benefits are not cash. CalFresh benefits are provided on an electronic card that is used like an ATM or bank card to buy food at most grocery stores.
Applying for, and receiving, CalFresh will not affect a person’s immigration status or the immigration status of that family.
See CalFresh Brochures for more information on eligibility criteria and requirements.
