Welcome to California’s CalFresh Health Living user resources and references page for the Program Evaluation And Reporting System (PEARS). PEARS is a centralized data collection and reporting system developed with the Kansas State University Office of Education Innovation and Evaluation. California uses PEARS to collect, analyze and report on the CalFresh healthy Living program to meet federal mandates required by our funders and showcase our outcomes and accomplishments throughout the state.

PEARS Training Schedule

Due to COVID-19, all in-person PEARS trainings are canceled. We are currently working on new virtual trainings that will be released in the near future. Additional information will be released once available.
