Important Information About the CalFresh Time Limit
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CalFresh time limit has been temporarily suspended statewide beginning April 1, 2020 until further notice.
During this time, ABAWDs will not be required to meet the work requirement to keep receiving CalFresh.

Beginning September 1, 2018, CalFresh recipients between the ages of 18 and 49 without children in the home are required to meet certain work requirements.
