CalFresh Outreach

FSD’s CalFresh team enrolls eligible clients, dispels myths about food stamp assistance, and helps eliminate the stigma surrounding the program. Our outreach model is designed to move clients towards self-sufficiency and provide support throughout the complex application process.

The CalFresh team conducts outreach at large-scale food distributions, pantries and community events. In partnership with County of San Diego CalFresh eligibility workers, FSD piloted and is now expanding highly successful same-day application workshops. In last year, 798 clients were helped to complete their CalFresh application, generating an estimated $3,300,000 into San Diego County.
