There is a big change rolling out to Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and State Supplementary Payment (SSP) recipients this summer. , SSI/SSP recipients are now eligible to receive CalFresh benefits. If you’re newly eligible, don’t miss out on this benefit that will help you get the food you need! There are enough benefits for every eligible resident.

CalFresh is a program that can boost your budget and make it easier to buy healthy food at your local grocery store, neighborhood market, or farmers markets throughout San Francisco. Each person’s benefits are calculated individually based on factors like household size and current income., but SSI/SSP recipients could receive anywhere from $15–$192 each month. Your benefits roll over month-to-month and can be saved up for large purchases or special occasions, like a holiday! • Your SSI/SSP benefits will not be affected by your CalFresh benefits.
