The CalFresh Restaurant Meals Program is an optional county program that allows CalFresh recipients who are 60 years of age or older, disabled, or homeless to use their CalFresh benefits to purchase lower cost prepared meals at approved participating restaurants in certain counties.

Please contact your local county social services agency for more information on the CalFresh Restaurant Meals Program. Below is a list of participating counties as of 2018:

Look for the "EBT Cards Accepted Here" sign in the window or contact your local county human services office to get a list of participating restaurants.

If your county isn't listed here, ask your CalFresh Eligibility Worker if you can use your EBT card at participating restaurants in your area. New counties are joining every year and working with restaurants all the time.

The participating restaurants in the CalFresh Restaurant Meals Program can be found here.
