CalFresh Logo

The name for California's Food Stamp Program has changed as a result of recent State law. The new name for the program is "CalFresh". The name change will not change your benefits. The amount of CalFresh (formerly known as food stamp) benefits you receive will not be different because of the name change.

CalFresh was established to improve the nutrition of people in low-income households.  It does that by increasing their food-buying power, so they are able to purchase the amount of food their household needs.  CalFresh benefits are used instead of money at the grocery store.

CalFresh benefits are issued via a Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card.

ALERT!!! Social Media, Telephone and Cell Phone Text Scam!

EBT cardholders continue to receive text messages and/or phone calls from number(s) listed in column 2 below instructing them to call the numbers listed in column 3 below where an automated recording asks them to provide personal information including their EBT 16-digit card number and PIN. When the information is given, the perpetrators then create a card and withdraw funds from the recipient’s accounts. This is a scam. Cardholders should not provide any information. Cardholders who have already provided card numbers and PINs to a third party should call the phone on back of their EBT card and change their PINs or to report their EBT cards as lost or stolen.
