CalFresh Outreach: The Numbers Are In
November 30, 2018
We are proud to share that our network of 50 CalFresh outreach partners assisted more than 25,000 households with CalFresh applications this past year. Over the last year, this group of dedicated and compassionate “CalFreshies” helped more than 14,000 households across the state get approved for CalFresh. Thousands of these households include some of the most vulnerable populations, including children and seniors.

For those in our network, the new contract for FFY 18-19 is with the state for countersignature, and MOUs will be sent out to all partners once it’s been signed. As a reminder, the contract is backdated to October 1 and there should be no disruption to your workflows.
