You can use your EBT card at most grocery stores, like the Food Connections Market, neighborhood stores, and farmer’s markets.

At our Food Connections office, we can help you apply for CalFresh. Find more information about CalFresh here.

We will need your identification, Social Security numbers, and income verification. If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) you may now qualify for CalFresh! To apply now, click here.
