Need Remains High in Wake of Shutdown

 
 
As you may not know, many people we serve also receive federal nutrition benefits (CalFresh) and because of the recent government shutdown, families will be receiving their next benefit 10 to 20 days late.
 
This disruption in CalFresh benefits is predicted to cause an unprecedented strain on food banks. CalFresh typically provides families with enough food to last two to three weeks and a third of all recipients already rely on food banks to make ends meet.
