CalFresh Outreach Program

Welcome to the UC Merced CalFresh community!

Our goal is to help students enroll for CalFresh and to provide students with one-on-one 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.
