Community supports and resources have changed and evolved during the pandemic, so be sure to apply even if you’ve been turned down in the past. 


Sick or Exposed?

If you're sick, get information on isolation procedures. If you've been exposed, get information on how to quarantine.



Get up to $250 per person, per month, in food assistance with CalFresh.  Apply in less than 10 minutes, then receive an EBT card (which works like a debit card) that you can use at most food stores and farmers’ markets. (You can even make your CalFresh dollars go oven further by doubling them with MarketMatch at select farmers’ markets.)
