IMPORTANT CALFRESH INFORMATION ABOUT THE FEDERAL SHUTDOWN
Because of the federal government shutdown, February CalFresh benefits for most participants will be issued early, between January 16-20.
If you receive your February CalFresh benefits early, you should plan your food budget knowing that these benefits will be the only benefits provided through the end of February.
If you receive CalFresh and have a SAR 7 report due in January, please complete that process as soon as possible and approved benefits are scheduled to be issued February 1-10.
New applications continue to be accepted and processed, and expedited service is available, as usual.
The EBT system continues to be operational and the majority of stores will continue to accept EBT.
