CalFresh is the new name for the Federal Food Stamps Program in California. In other states, this program, is now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and is administered by the U.S Department of Agriculture. The CalFresh program can help add to household food budgets to put healthy and nutritious food on the table. The program issues monthly electronic benefits that can be used to buy nutritious foods at many supermarkets and food stores.
The CalFresh Program helps to improve the health and well-being of qualified households and individuals by providing them a means to meet their nutritional needs.
