CalFresh FAQ

How does CalFresh expand my food budget?

If you are approved for CalFresh you will receive an EBT card that looks like a debit card. You can use this card to purchase food at most grocery stores and farmers' markets.

What are the eligibility requirements?

To be eligible for CalFresh you must:

  • Make between $0 - $2010 per month for a household of 1
  • Have U.S. citizenship, permanent residency, U/T Visa or refugee status
  • Not have a meal plan from the University that covers 2+ meals per day
  • If you are younger than 22 and live with your parents, you must apply with your family (if you are over 22 you can apply on your own)
  • If you are over 18 and do not live with your parents you can apply on your own
  • Student must meet at least ONE of the following exemptions:
  • Work an average of 20 hours/week or more
  • Be approved for and accepted Work Study
  • Enrolled in EOP, MESA, or Guardian Scholars Program
  • Have a child under 12
  • Receiving Cal Grant A or B
  • Other exemptions may apply

**If you have a meal plan from the University, and receive 2+ meals per day, unfortunately you will not qualify for CalFresh. We recommend applying at a later time when you no longer have a meal plan.**

What should I bring to the CalFresh Help Clinic?

Yourself! You will eventually need to gather verification documents to complete your application. Your CalFresh Navi-Gator can help you figure out which documents you need and how to get them.
