    The CalFresh Program, federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is another helpful food resource that the Food Pantry staff can help you with. CalFresh can increase students’ food budgets and help put healthy and nutritious food on their table. The program issues monthly electronic benefits on a debit style card, called the Golden State Advantage Card. Benefits allow students to purchase food items at most grocery stores, markets, and farmers markets. The amount of benefits received is based on household size, income, and bills and since this is a federally funded program, only permanent residents or citizens of the U.S. can qualify.
