Food Stamps

*As of October 2010, CalFresh is the new name for the Federal Food Stamp Program. The county you reside in may use a different name, but it is still the same program. The name change reflects the promotion of using Food Stamps to purchase nutritious and healthy foods.

CalFresh, (more commonly known as Food Stamps), is America’s largest anti-hunger program, providing financial help for families, the unemployed, disabled, elderly, and low-income workers. However, California ranks 49th in the nation in regards to number of eligible people who receive this vital aid.

To help people get enrolled and stay enrolled:

We partner with our member charities and the Social Services Agency of Orange County to help individuals complete their applications and quarterly reports.

We hold workshops each month in Fullerton, Orange, Placentia, and Tustin, where our bilingual staff members helps individuals fill out Food Stamp applications. After the applications have been filled out correctly, applicants are interviewed by Eligibility Technicians from the Social Services Agency to complete the process.
