Food and nutrition

We can help your family get connected to healthy food and nutrition resources. Some of the programs we work with are:

  • CalFresh: Add extra dollars to your family’s food budget and put healthy and nutritious food on the table with monthly electronic benefits that can be used at most stores and farmer’s markets.
  • Food for People: Food assistance programs are available for qualifying families.
Why are health insurance and nutrition important?

We believe in healthy families and healthy kids. Access to health insurance and healthy foods has many benefits:

  • Healthy Kids are more successful in school
  • Preventative care and proper nutrition means less illness
  • Doctor’s visits can be expensive without health insurance
  • Kids need regular checkups and dental care
