CalFresh benefits can be used for
a wide range of products, but there are some restrictions. They may be
used to buy:
- any food meant for human use, and
- plants and seeds grown for food and
sold in grocery stores.
They may not be used for:
- pet food
- laundry, household, or paper supplies
The ELECTRONIC BENEFIT CARD (EBT) replaced CalFresh coupons and functions as a debit card. Participants will no longer be required to go to issuance outlets. The participant will use the EBT card at most markets where they shop now.
