What is this service?
The Restaurant Meals Program (RMP) is an option that is only available for CalFresh eligible individuals who are considered elderly (age 60 years and up), disabled, or homeless. It is intended to help individuals who may struggle to prepare meals or who may not have the facilities to store or to prepare food safely. This is why California has chosen to allow specific CalFresh recipients the ability to purchase prepare and hot foods using their Golden Advantage EBT Card at approved restaurants. The Federal rules preventing the purchase of hot, prepared meals still apply to all other CalFresh participants.
