CalFresh Community Forum a Success

The CalFresh Taskforce hosted a successful community forum on April 15, 2019 where information about the CalFresh Expansion to SSI recipients was shared. Community Partners had the opportunity to learn about the the CalFresh Program, the implementation plan in Marin County and engage in an open discussion about what can be done collectively to make the expansion a smooth transition for the community. CalFresh Taskforce and Outreach co-chairs, Alex Danino and Paula Freeman, highlighted the goals, strategies, and efforts to help partners and clients navigate and enroll in the program.  Outreach materials for the CalFresh Expansion to SSI recipients were developed and distributed to partners at the forum.
