Mrs. Flores was working but wasn’t earning enough to meet her family’s needs. Since her husband lost his job, Mrs. Flores struggled every month to cover basic expenses. Talking with Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services’ (SFBFS) staff at a CalFresh outreach event opened the door to hope for her.
The SFBFS team members explained how CalFresh could help supplement the family’s income while her husband tried to find work. She applied and was thrilled to tell a CalFresh staff member who called later that she was now getting CalFresh benefits.
“Receiving CalFresh is like a miracle for me at this time of my life,” Mrs. Flores said.
