California Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT)
EBT is the system used in California for the delivery, redemption, and reconciliation of public assistance benefits, such as CalFresh or SNAP benefits, California Food Assistance Program benefits, and cash aid benefits. EBT is used here in California, and is also used in the other 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam. California EBT cards can be used at thousands of businesses and ATMs throughout California.
The CalFresh Program, formerly known as Food Stamps and federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP, can add to your food budget to put healthy and nutritious food on the table. The program issues monthly electronic benefits that can be used to buy most foods at many markets, food stores, and farmers’ markets.
