Tell Congress: Help Avert the CalFresh Benefit Cliff

During the pandemic, Californians have been getting extra CalFresh benefits to help make ends meet. But the extra benefits will sunset when pandemic health emergency declarations are no longer in place.

These unprecedented times will require continued robust investments, so Californians with low incomes have a fair shot at recovery. Ask your Members of Congress to help avert the impending benefit cliff AND permanently raise CalFresh benefits by cosponsoring Closing the Meal Gap Act of 2021 (S.2192 / H.R.4077). Among other substantive changes, the bill would increase baseline benefits by approximately 30%.
