Double the 'Fresh' in CalFresh: Budget Request

CalFresh helps over 4 million people put food on the table. However, the federal benefit levels limit the ability to purchase healthy foods. The California Fruit & Vegetable EBT Pilot Project State Budget request would provide $9 million in one-time funding to (1) Enable the CalFresh EBT system to seamlessly provide a dollar-for-dollar match upon the purchase of California fresh fruits and vegetables; and (2) Fund and implement seven community-based pilots at selected farmers' markets and retailers statewide.
