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 representitive today for a quick chat about eligibility. Or, view the brochure Applying for CalFresh and visit the California Department of Social Services website at http://www.calfresh.ca.gov/
Apply in person, online (BenefitsCal.com OR GetCalFresh.org/ ), mail or phone. Provide proof of address, picture ID, Social Security Administration cards, immigration cards, paystubs, unemployment, disability, cash gifts or loans received. Additional verifications may be requested. Give a quick call and talk to a rep to see what you should bring, since sometimes all that is needed is a quick chat about your situation.
