May 10, 2017 (San Diego’s East County) -- The desire to eat healthier often comes with an all too familiar roadblock: staying within the family food budget while grocery shopping. There is help for families and individuals to supplement their food budget through CalFresh, a supplemental nutrition program for families and individuals that meet income guidelines.   CalFresh is designed to reduce food insecurity and increase food budgets, improving participant’s access to fresh and healthy food.
