CalFresh Healthy Living – University of California Program
The CalFresh Healthy Living – UC program is funded through a joint agreement among the U.S. Department of Agriculture/Food and Nutrition Service (USDA/FNS), the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) CalFresh branch, and the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE). CFHL-UC consists of Adult, Family-Centered, and Youth programs operating throughout California.
Through grant funding from the USDA, Nutrition Educators are able to bring FREE CURRICULA and other resources that promote healthy food choices, physical activity and gardening education to local schools and community organizations. Schools initially qualify by having 50% or more of their students eligible to receive free or reduced-priced meals through the National School Lunch Program. The majority of Yuba and Sutter County schools meet these criteria.
For more information and to see if your school or organization qualifies, please contact Melissa Ussery or Rita Palmer at 530.822.7515.
