This public benefits system provides monthly food-related assistance to qualifying individuals. Federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), CalFresh collaborates with partners to identify education programs as potential components of CalFresh Employment & Training (E&T). Partners also help develop protocols to verify exemptions for individuals enrolled in a postsecondary education/training while still qualifying for E&T benefits, and processes to verify participation in educational programs.
