Food Assistance for Everyone
There are programs to help you and your family when you don't have enough food. CalFresh helps people and families who do not have enough money to buy food every month. The Food Bank has programs that provide food and fresh fruits and vegetables.
CalFresh (formerly Food Stamps)
CalFresh issues food benefits on a plastic card, called the Golden State Advantage Card. You use it just like a bank card at most food stores. The amount of the food benefit you get is based on the size of your household, your income, and your housing expenses. You can learn more or apply for CalFresh by completing an online application. If you want some help filling out the application, call the Food Bank 855-309-FOOD (3663). If you have an immediate need for food please click on Need Food Now?
