CalFresh enrollment is a mandatory eligibility requirement for the Fresh Success Program. Students may be currently receiving or eligible to receive CalFresh.
CalFresh (formerly the food stamp program and federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP) is a federally mandated, state-supervised, and county-operated government entitlement program that provides monthly food benefits to assist low-income households in purchasing the food they need to maintain adequate nutritional levels.
All U.S. citizens or Legal Permanent Resident children may qualify to receive CalFresh benefits, regardless of where the parents are born.
The program issues monthly benefits that can be used to buy most foods at many markets and food stores.These benefits are issued on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card which looks like any other credit card.
If you are finding it difficult to afford the nutritious food that you and your family needs, the CalFresh Program may be able to help you
