California’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP, known as CalFresh, is the largest food program in California and is federally mandated and state-supervised and country-operated. The amount of benefits a household receives is dependent on household size, countable income and monthly expenses like rent and utilities.

The program issues monthly benefits on an EBT card, similar to other states.

Through CalFresh EBT cards, food can be purchased at any grocery store or farmer’s market that accepts EBT cards.

In December of 2021, CalFresh Emergency Allotment was approved and will be made available on all EBT cards no later than Sunday, Jan. 16, 2022. These extra supplemental food benefits were approved and granted through the USDA allowing for emergency allotments based on a public health emergency declaration related to COVID-19 outbreaks when a state has also issued an emergency or disaster declaration.
