    The Chico State food educational services, Center for Healthy Communities, provided information and application help for students applying to CalFresh on Oct. 21.

    “My fridge is almost always empty,” said Lara Young, sophomore anthropology major. “A lot of times I put other stuff before food when it comes to money.”

    CalFresh is a state program that provides those in need with access to healthy and nutritious food through food stamps.

    “It’s a resource for students that are struggling to barely make it,” said Heidi Agustin, CalFresh program assistant.

    Some of the CalFresh application aid provided by the Center for Healthy Communities include eligibility prescreens and interview process advice.

    “It’s been really nice to be able to go grocery shopping and not stress about how you’re gonna pay certain bills,” said Alica Bedore, CalFresh user.

    For more information about CalFresh or how to apply, call the Center for Healthy Communities at (530) 345-9749 or apply online at the CalFresh website.
