What is Churn?
Measuring Churn in California
Reducing Churn to Zero
Too many people who still need and qualify for food assistance from CalFresh are losing help for administrative reasons — not because they no longer need or qualify for help. This interruption of service creates hunger, hardship, and instability for that family.It also usually leads to a re-application, generating redundant paper work both for the family and the county serving them. This problem is called “churn” and it is hampering Californians’ participation in CalFresh (or SNAP), the nation’s number one defense against hunger.
