CalFresh Application Assistance

Welcome to CalFresh!

CalFresh, also known as SNAP/EBT, is a long term food assistance program that awards eligible students up to $291 per month for groceries. 

It can be used to buy nutritious and healthy foods. 

CalFresh funds are loaded monthly into an EBT card that can be used just like a debit card at most major chain grocery stores, convenience stores, some smaller stores like the Berkeley Student Food Collective, and even select farmers' markets!
