KPCC Asks: CalFresh, SNAP, EBT: What's your experience with Food Stamps?
A new study says that many people who could qualify for food stamps (now called CalFresh in California and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP nationally) cannot get access to the food stamps. What's your experience with the food stamp program?
What can you afford and not afford to buy with the food stamp program? Can you buy organic? Do you bypass processed foods? What influence do other family members have on your use of food stamps?
If you're an applicant, recipient, merchant or if you work with an agency or company that deals with food stamps, please share your story with KPCC.
