    CalFresh is a benefit that helps low-income individuals and households purchase food. The benefits are available to the participant through an EBT card similar to any debit card. They can make purchases at most grocery stores and farmer’s markets. Disabled, elderly, and homeless participants may use the benefits to purchase prepared food at participating restaurants. CalFresh is administered through the SNAP via the Federal government, supervised at the State level, and operated by individual Counties. The benefit amount varies as it is determined by household income, number of people in the household, and certain expenses taken into consideration.
