About Food and Nutrition Services
Food and Nutrition Services is a program of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that fights hunger and strives to improve nutrition and health. It assists low-income households in purchasing necessary food for a nutritionally adequate diet.
Households must meet certain income and resource standards in order to receive CalFresh. Applicants must also be U.S. citizens or belong to certain non-citizen groups that are eligible for the program. CalFresh benefit amounts are based upon your household size and income.
