SB 285 (Wiener): CalFresh Connect

Hunger is a solvable problem if we effectively utilize the most powerful tool we have—CalFresh Despite the economic and agricultural riches of California, more than 4.1 million low-income households are food insecure. CalFresh, our largest nutrition and anti-poverty program, has the greatest poverty reduction impact among social service programs. However, three in ten eligible households don’t gain access to CalFresh. While California has been slowly and steadily improving, we are still among the lowest-performing states at connecting struggling households to federal food assistance. We can, and must, do better.
