Highlights from the 12th Annual CalFresh Forum

For the last 11 years, the California Food Stamp Forum has brought together administrators, advocates and policymakers to design ways to improve the Food Stamp Program in California.  With the recent launch of the new CalFresh brand, we were pleased to host the 2011 CalFresh Forum. This year's forum continued the tradition of bringing together key stakeholders to discuss ways to improve the reach and impact of these vital health and nutrition benefits for low-income Californians.
