Strengthening the Connection between CalFresh & Medi-Cal

Reduced food insecurity and improved access to nutritious foods are fundamental goals of CalFresh. These objectives are also strongly linked to supporting the overall health and well-being of CalFresh participants. In an effort to further the connection between nutrition and health, the link between CalFresh and other health benefits should be strengthened. Moreover, through the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, millions of low-income Californians will soon be newly eligible for Medi-Cal. There is no better time to connect low-income Californians with a comprehensive package of benefits, including CalFresh, that will truly support overall good health.
