CalFreshThe latest data from the state of California shows unemployment for May at nearly 17%. That's more than four times what it was a year earlier. Because of pandemic related economic stress, food banks and government aid programs are seeing a dramatic rise in need.
In Sonoma County, the Department of Human Services reports increasing numbers of residents enrolling in CalFresh, the state's version of food stamps. KRCB's Adia White spoke with Felisa Pinson, Division Director for the county's Economic Assistance Division.  Pinson explains just how many new applications for CalFresh her department has received.
