Sonoma State is now supporting CalFresh outreach as part of our Basic Needs program and you could be eligible for CalFresh*. CalFresh could be worth up to $150 a month in assistance to buy groceries. A CalFresh card is as easy to use as a debit card and we will help you with the application process.
As many as 40% of all college students are food insecure. There is no reason not to take advantage of your eligibility. You could have up to $150 more a month to help you buy food.
On February 27, 2019, we will be having a CalFresh Festival to help students fill out their applications, collect needed documents, and meet resources providers from the campus and the community.
Learn more about the program, fill out your application, get free giveaways, and be on your way to a more secure food future. If you cannot make it on this date, please email us at email@example.com and we will set you up with a CalFresh Adviser to help you complete the application process.
* If you are on a campus meal plan that provides more than 11 meals a week, you are not currently eligible for CalFresh but you should contact us for an appointment as soon as you are no longer on a meal plan.
