The CalFresh Program is a federal nutrition program that helps eligible, low income people purchase the food they need for good health.
CalFresh benefits are not cash. Households that are eligible will receive a plastic electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card that is used at the store, like a debit card, when purchasing food items.
To be eligible for CalFresh:
You may screen for CalFresh eligibility by going to the CalFresh website or you may contact Alpine County Social Services @ 530-694-2235.
