Federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Food Stamps, the purpose of CalFresh is to promote the health and well being of qualified households by providing means to meet their nutritional needs.
Benefits are distributed to a discrete EBT card that can be used like a debit card at many of the major chain grocery stores including: COSTCO and Trader Joe's. The Berkeley Student Food Collective also takes EBT!
Cal Fresh Clinics are hosted the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month from 9-12pm. If you are interested in signing up for the next clinic, sign up here.
