Disaster CalFresh Available for Shasta County; Automatic Replacement Benefits Information

August 17, 2018

Disaster CalFresh

As a response to the Carr Fire, Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) approved Disaster CalFresh in Shasta County. Applications will be accepted August 22-25 and August 27-29. The state will not be deploying outreach workers, so we encourage everyone with a connection to Shasta County to help get the word out as quickly as possible given the limited application window.

  • Incurred disaster-related expenses; or
  • Experienced a disruption in income; or
  • Had damage to their home or self-employment property; or
  • Experienced food loss as result of the fire or related power outages; and
