Food Stamps: July Benefits for California Recipients

All SNAP households should receive their July benefits according to schedule.

If you did not receive your food stamps on schedule, call the SNAP office to find out why.

You can use your CalFresh benefits to shop online, including on Amazon and Walmart.

Additionally, you can use CalFresh benefits to purchase produce at farmers’ markets, including markets that offer double bucks.

California P-EBT for Summer 2022

The P-EBT benefit for school children is available for the entire summer of 2022.

However, the benefit for SNAP-enrolled children under 6 is only available through the end of the federal government’s COVID-19 public health emergency declaration.

Should the public health emergency (PHE) declaration end prior to the end of the summer, P-EBT benefits for this group will be prorated.

The PHE is currently set to expire July 9.

If it is extended, USDA will release guidance on providing children 0-6 on SNAP the remainder of the full benefit for the summer, which would be an additional $200.

How to Double CalFresh Benefits with Market Match

Market Match is a nutrition incentive program offered at 130 farmers’ markets across the state of California.

The program doubles customers’ buying power when they spend their CalFresh EBT benefits at participating markets.

Market Match supports local farms and helps low-income shoppers afford more locally grown fruits and vegetables.

How to get Market Match Dollars

Getting market match dollars is easy.

Simply visit the market info booth, where staff will swipe your EBT card for the amount you choose.

Then the market manager provides $1 wooden tokens that can be used like cash at the farmers’ stalls to purchase many foods, plus seeds/plants that produce food in a garden.

With Market Match, you will also receive a bonus of free Market Match dollar tokens on top of that, to stretch your CalFresh dollars further.

This bonus matching benefit is available once per market day, all season long as funds permit.

What are the benefits of Market Match?

Market Match makes fresh produce affordable to low-income families.

Fruit and vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet, but they cost more per calorie than most processed foods.

Therefore families on a tight food budget are often unable to afford enough for optimum health.

Market Match makes food stamp dollars go farther, and it also helps level the playing field by making local and sustainable produce more accessible to people with limited income.

California to provide Food Assistance to undocumented residents

California will soon become the first state in the nation to extend food assistance benefits to some undocumented immigrants.

A recent budget bill the state legislature passed includes a proposal by Gov. Gavin Newsom to allow immigrants age 55 and older who are currently shut out of food stamps programs to receive food assistance benefits.

The expansion will occur in the California Food Assistance Program, or CFAP, a state-funded version of food stamps that helps income-qualified immigrants who are not eligible for the federally-funded CalFresh program.

According to a report by the ‘Food4All’ coalition, 45% of all undocumented immigrants live in food-insecure households. Children are especially at risk.
