Food Connections connects our neighbors in need to hunger-relief resources and programs in their immediate neighborhoods. The program office also helps those in need navigate the CalFresh application process, one of the most significant tools available in the fight against hunger. Our Food Connections team enrolled hundreds of families in the CalFresh benefit program last year, significantly increasing the meal budget for families facing hunger in our community.
Last year, Food Connections made roughly 4,500 referrals to local hunger-relief programs, and enrolled nearly 320 households in the CalFresh benefit program, with an average benefit of $189.34 per household.
