Cal- Fresh:  

Cal-Fresh is a nutrition program that can help households buy healthy foods. In California, Cal-Fresh used to be known as the Food Stamp Program. Nationally, the program is called SNAP. It is funded by the federal government. Cal-Fresh benefits are issued on an EBT card that works like a debit card and can be used at most grocery stores and many farmer's markets to purchase food. The amount of your benefits depends on your family size, income, and monthly expenses.
