CalFresh is the new name for the federal Food Stamps Program in California.
In most other states, this program – administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture – is now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Community Food Bank staff can help families learn more about the CalFresh Program and assist them in applying. You can contact our bilingual staff to get prescreened over the phone by calling 559-237-3663, or come to a distribution location to have applicaion assistance.
