For individuals and families experiencing poverty, reliable access to nutritious food supports good physical health, reduces chronic illness, and helps ease the constant worry about having enough food on the table. Beginning in June 2019, Seniors and people with disabilities receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI)/State Supplemental Payment (SSP) became eligible for CalFresh nutrition assistance.
