The Center for Healthy Communities at Chico State (CHC) has received funding to expand and continue the CalFresh Outreach (CFO) Higher Ed. Contract through 2024. The California Department of Social Services funds the Center to run the CFO program which includes providing training and technical assistance to 5 community based organizations and 50 college campuses spanning all 3 systems of public higher education and private colleges in the state of California.

CHC partners with these community organizations and campuses to assist likely eligible community members and college students with the CalFresh Food benefit application process. CalFresh Food benefits help supplement applicants' grocery budgets so they can afford healthy food and contributes significantly to the economy.
