CalFresh recipients may request for replacement benefits for food lost due to power outage

CalFresh recipients in Solano County may be eligible for replacement benefits for food spoiled due to the recent power outages if the food was purchased using CalFresh benefits in October 2019. To qualify for a replacement, recipients must make the request by submitting a food replacement form within ten days after experiencing the food loss.

"We want to ensure that families and individuals who rely on CalFresh as their main food resource are able to get the help they need without having to wait another month for their benefits," said Solano County Health & Social Services Deputy Director Marla Stuart. "Contact your Eligibility Worker to determine if you are eligible for replacement benefits, or go to the nearest office."

To begin the process of replacing CalFresh benefits, recipients may contact their Eligibility Worker, call the Benefits Action Center at 1-800-400-6001, or visit any of the Health & Social Services locations:

  • 365 Tuolumne Street, Vallejo | (707) 553-5000
  • 275 Beck Avenue, Fairfield | (707) 784-8050
  • 1119 E. Monte Vista Avenue, Vacaville | (707) 553-5000

The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano also provides assistance for people struggling to find food. For more information about where to find food in Solano County, visit https://www.foodbankccs.org/get-help/foodbycity.html.
