Thousands of Californians are eligible for CalFresh Food Benefits but aren’t using them


CalFresh, Federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP, provides monthly benefits to people and families in need.  

The benefits are based on income, not net worth, so people can have jobs and assets while still qualifying for CalFresh Food Benefits.  

Alberto Garcia, from the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, joins Central Valley Today to talk about who qualifies for CalFresh and how to sign up.
