CalFresh helps by giving YOU funds for healthy and nutritious food so you can stress less about
a budget for groceries and focus more on school! CalFresh is a USDA-funded program, designed to allow you to live a healthy lifestyle.
CalFresh is free money for groceries that you do NOT have to pay back! As you learn
to budget and balance your busy schedule, let CalFresh be the tool you used to stretch
your food budget for fruits and vegetables.
