CalFresh (formerly Food Stamps), also known as SNAP, is a federal nutrition program that helps people with low or no income purchase healthy food. Benefits are issued on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card that can be used at most grocery stores and farmers' markets.
To receive CalFresh benefits, your household income and resources must meet certain limits. The amount of CalFresh benefits your household may be eligible for is determined by income and family size.
