CalFresh Food Stamp Program- It is now easier to apply and receive benefits via GetCalFresh.org.
You do not have to interview in order to qualify (up until May), nor report your income (up until June).
The state is issuing additional emergency allotments (EA) on cards already active for March/April. If you meet CalFresh eligibility, the maximum benefit will be automatically loaded onto your EBT account. You will not have your benefit amount reduced due to income.
New applicants can fill out the online application that takes about 10 minutes. If someone needs assistance, the Berkeley Free Clinic has volunteers available to help Alameda County residents with the application process.
