Much Needed Food Relief Funding
The US Department of Agriculture recently approved additional food assistance funding for families with children. Families that receive CalFresh, have children participating in the free and reduced price lunch program, or are on MediCal will receive an additional one-time EBT payment of $365 per child. This additional funding is an essential lifeline for families that are struggling to provide enough food for their families. If you are eligible and have not received your payment by the end of May you can visit the CA Department of Social Services website to apply: https://www.cdss.ca.gov/home/pandemic-ebt.
