Every week, we share a weekly round-up of resources to help support you and your community.
CALFRESH FOOD BENEFITS
Additionally, families that would typically benefit from free or reduced meals at public schools will receive an additional $365, as it has been harder to access those discounted meals through the statewide school closure.
MY CHILD CARE
MyChildCare.ca.gov is a new online portal to find safe, reliable, and accessible child care options.
The new site enables parents to enter their location and the type of care they need, instantly receiving a list of local center-based and family child care programs.

FARM TO FAMILY
The State has a partnership with 128 farmers and ranchers to distribute fresh produce, dairy and meat to food banks. The goal is to distribute 21 million pounds of fresh food on a monthly basis.
“Food boxes” would contain three to four days worth of food for a family of four. They contain fresh, locally sourced food (not just cannedgoods).
