CalFresh is a nutrition assistance program that helps low-income individuals and families buy the food they need. CalFresh dollars help stretch a tight food budget and help many people afford to incorporate healthy foods like fruits and vegetables into their diets. CalFresh is the California name of the USDA-funded Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
An electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card is used like a debit card at most grocery stores and farmers’ markets.
