Learn More About CalFresh

OhSNAP! began as a student-to-student CalFresh outreach group in 2013. Helping our fellow students access food through applying for SNAP benefits is still at the core of our mission. Use this page to learn more about where to get started and what do to with your benefits once you’ve acquired them. Always feel free to stop by our pantry and outreach room in the Recreation and Wellness Building – 122. See the homepage for updated hours of operation.

Purchase CSA Shares with your CalFresh benefits:
In a typical CSA arrangement, customers pay upfront before receiving food. CalFresh recipients can use their benefits to participate in a CSA, but can only pay for up to two weeks of food in advance.
