Important News for CalFresh Families

PHFE WIC is pleased to share this good news with families who receive CalFresh benefits.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) announced that the full amount of CalFresh benefits for March will be issued on March 1, 2019 to eligible households, rather than the normal staggered issuance cycle of the first through the tenth of the month. These early benefits are not to be mistaken for additional benefits, and customers are strongly urged to budget their benefits accordingly to ensure that funds are available to purchase food through the month of March.
