    What is SNAP?

    The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the CalFresh program that provides qualified applicants with an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card that may be used in participating grocery stores to supplement your food purchases. This new program is going to be replacing Food Stamps and continue to help those that need it. Eligibility for the program depends on residency, citizenship or immigration status, income, resources/assets, and other factors. The EBT card is used just like a debit card so it's discrete and no cash has to be moved. 

    For additional information about the program please come talk to a representative today for a quick chat about eligibility. Or, view the brochure Applying for CalFresh and visit the California Department of Social Services website at
