    TAD/DPH CalFresh Targeted Outreach

    The San Bernardino County Transitional Assistance Department (TAD) and Department of Public Health (DPH) enhanced collaboration to facilitate a targeted outreach initiative that promoted the CalFresh program (California’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program [SNAP]) to the food insecure population within the county. Participation in this outreach is a key component to ensuring constituents experiencing food instability are aware of the CalFresh program and how they can apply for benefits. Targeted outreach offers TAD and DPH an opportunity to build community partnerships while serving residents, all while aligning with San Bernardino County’s mission to enhance quality of life. During DPH County Nutrition Action Partnership (CNAP) and Food Rescue Anti-Hunger Coalition (FRAHC) meetings that focus on addressing food insecurity and access to healthy foods, TAD staff provide an overview of the CalFresh program (including printed publications), clarify common misconceptions, and provide Community and Faith Based Organizations (CBOs/FBOs), and local school districts with information on how to become an application assistor. Participation in the targeted outreach approach has provided increased access to this vital program and promotes food security for vulnerable county residents. County San Bernardino County, Calif.
