What is CalFresh?

CalFresh is also known as Food Stamps, EBT, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

CalFresh is provides monthly food benefits to qualifying individuals and families so they can purchase nutritious foods. It helps stretch your monthly food budget, thus allowing you to afford necessary food, including fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods.

Recipients of CalFresh benefits receive their funds through an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. You may use this card to buy your monthly groceries. This includes

Public Charge

There is a large amount of stigma and fear surrounding social programs, such as CalFresh. For many individuals and families, there is a fear of being considered a Public Charge for receiving aid, which would affect them negatively if they decide to pursue citizenship.

StLRS recognizes the language, legal, and cultural barriers in place that make it difficult for people to access health and nutritional. We are committed to aiding everyone who needs assistance accessing these services and programs.

We are here to assure you that you will NOT be considered a public charge for receiving benefits like CalFresh or Medi-Cal.
