CalFresh benefits can help buy nutritious foods for a better diet. CalFresh benefits stretch food budgets, allowing individuals and families to afford nutritious food, including more fruit, vegetables and other healthy foods. The amount of benefits a household receives is dependent on household size, countable income, and monthly expenses, such as housing and utilities. The program issues monthly benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. Food may be purchased at any grocery store or farmer’s markets, or restaurants that accepts EBT cards.

Medi-Cal Coverage

Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid Program. It is a health care coverage program for low-income families and individuals who live in California. Since March 2020, Medi-Cal renewal processing was put on hold due to the continuous coverage requirement, as a result beneficiaries retained their Medi-Cal coverage with no renewal process.

As of April 2023, Alameda County Social Services Agency resumed the Medi-Cal renewal process. Keep yourself and your family covered.

Ensure that your information is updated, check your mail, and complete your Medi-Cal renewal packet and return to the County office by the due date in order to avoid a break in coverage.
