“Hot Foods” Waiver Granted for CalFresh Recipients in Six Counties
August 22, 2018
We do not offer food. Here’s where you can find food.
As a result of the ongoing fires, a “hot foods” waiver has been approved by FNS for affected CalFresh households in the following counties:
This means that current CalFresh recipients in those counties may now use their benefits to purchase hot and/or prepared foods through September 16th.
If you are not a CalFresh recipient but are in need of food assistance in Lake or Shasta counties due to losses incurred as a result of the fires, you may qualify for Disaster CalFresh assistance. See previous posts for more information.
