grown, fresh food more affordable to CalFresh (food stamp) customers. The program matches customers’ Calfresh benefits spent at participating markets (EBT), dollar-for-dollar, up to a $10 or $20 maximum, depending on the market. For each $1 that the USDA awarded, we secured $1 in funds or in-kind contributions.Thus, we truly could not do this work without the on-going contributions of local businesses, agencies, and contributors!

CalFresh Awareness Month improves access to locally grown produce at farmers’ markets by providing an incentive to CalFresh users. It increases CalFresh users’ purchasing power, the economic viability of local farms, and keeps money in our local economy.
