CalFresh Restaurant Meals Program
The CalFresh Restaurant Meals Program is a program that provides older adults aged 60 or older, people with disabilities, and homeless persons the option to use their CalFresh food benefits to purchase prepared meals at approved participating restaurants, within counties that have a current Restaurant Meals Program.
Contact the county directly for more information on their Restaurant Meals Program.
List of counties participating in the Restaurant Meals Program as of February 2021:
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.
Some counties have been approved to implement their Restaurant Meals Program and are actively recruiting vendors. For the most recent list of these counties, please contact CDSSRMP@dss.ca.gov
