CalFresh Faculty and Staff Resources

In the past 12 months, Cal Poly’s CalFresh Outreach program helped 561 students apply for federal food benefits. Most Cal Poly student CalFresh participants currently receive more than $200 per month for groceries. Students say that this benefit changes their lives. What’s more, every $1 of CalFresh benefits generates $1.79 in GDP, meaning those 561 students can inject nearly $3,000,000/year into the local economy: A true win-win!

Cal Poly faculty and staff have expressed interest in easy-to-use resources to advocate for student basic needs. Our CalFresh Outreach website contains helpful resources for faculty and staff, including Canvas-friendly visuals, videos, and syllabus statements and printed Cal Poly CalFresh Outreach note cards that contain quick and easy information related to food access resources.
