CalFresh Outreach Program

Welcome to the UC Merced CalFresh community!

Our goal is to help students enroll for CalFresh and to provide students with assistance throughout the entire application process. CalFresh is a program that can add to your food budget to put healthy and nutritious food on the table. The program issues a monthly monetary stipend in the form of electronic benefits that can be used to buy most foods at many markets and food stores. 

NOTE: There will be no peer application assistance drop in hours offered during the summer however, visit our other pages to get assistance with your application or contact us at
