CalFresh Program (formerly Food Stamps)

The CalFresh Program is a federal program that helps low-income people buy the food they need for good health and nutrition.  For most households, CalFresh benefits are only part of their food budget; they must spend some of their own cash along with their CalFresh benefits in order to buy enough food for the month.

Am I Eligible?
An online tool is available to help you estimate your eligibility for CalFresh.  You will see that the online tool refers to SNAP, the new Federal name for CalFresh.
