If you’ve received a text or phone call asking for your personal information, contact your county right away. The county or state will never text or call you requesting your EBT card number and your personal identification number (PIN). Never give your EBT Card number and PIN to anyone. With this information, someone could steal your benefits.
If you qualify for CalFresh assistance, you will receive an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) debit card. You can use your card to purchase food items at participating stores, or check your account balance, find retailers, and ATMs that accept the EBT card.
