CalFresh Food

Do you receive SSI? Don’t miss out on food benefits!

CalFresh Food helps people with low income buy the nutritious food they need for good health. Recipients who apply and meet federal income eligibility rules can purchase food at any grocery store or farmers market that accepts EBT.

Receiving CalFresh Food benefits does NOT change or reduce SSI/SSP amounts.
