CalFresh this November 2023

Around five million Californians have availed the CalFresh or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits as of November 2023. An amount of up to $1,751 will be given to a family of eight with an additional $219 for each member of the family after eight.

In a published article in the Washington Examiner, the distribution of SNAP or CalFresh will depend on the recipient’s case number. This is how they distribute the payment:

  • If a case number ends in 1, California recipients can expect to see their CalFresh benefits on Nov. 1.
  • If a case number ends in 2, they’ll be available on November 2.
  • The payment dates continue until Nov. 10, when those with a case number ending in 0 will receive their payment.
