What is CalFresh at Siskiyous?

CalFresh is a nutrition assistance program that helps low-income individuals and families buy the food they need. CalFresh dollars help stretch a tight food budget and help many people afford to incorporate healthy foods like fruits and vegetables into their diets.

CalFresh is the name of the USDA-funded Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in the state of California. Recipients receive and "spend" CalFresh benefits electronically, via personal Golden State Advantage electronic benefits transfer (EBT) cards that look just like any other credit or debit cards.

Siskiyous CalFresh Outreach Team guides students to food resources and through the CalFresh application process. Our passionate team of students can walk you through the CalFresh application, help you organize your materials for applying and send you reminders of next steps. We also link you to basic need resources to help you. We believe that students are happier and healthier when they have access to nutritious food and can then focus more on their academics and personal lives.
