To provide essential resources to overcome the many faces of hunger and human need.




What is CalFresh?

CalFresh is the new name for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in California.  Formerly known as the Food Stamps Program, this is a federal program run through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). CalFresh is intended to help low-income people put healthy food on their tables.  CalFresh benefits can be redeemed at grocery stores or Farmers Markets.  Many individuals are missing out on valuable help because they do not participate in the program.  Unfortunately, CalFresh is not used enough here in Elk Grove and surrounding areas.

As part of our mission to provide essential resources to overcome the many faces of hunger in our community, the Food Bank has a CalFresh Outreach Program in partnership with Sacramento County.  Through this program the Food Bank has trained staff available to answer questions about the CalFresh program, and accept applications from clients who wish to apply.

How Can We Help You?

The Elk Grove Food Bank Services can pre-screen you, help you with the application process and submit it to the county.  You can also apply online.  For more information on any of these opportunities please contact the CalFresh Outreach Coordinator, Judy Sala at (916) 512-0144 or (916) 685-8453.
