Ask your health care provider, clinic worker or ask to speak to a social worker to help you find food programs. There are even some food give away programs at LAC+USC Medical Center, Martin Luther King Jr. Outpatient Center, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Edward R. Roybal Comprehensive Health Center and Hubert H. Humphrey Comprehensive Health Center. If you are a patient at one of these clinics, ask a clinic worker to see if you qualify.

DPSS operated the Your Benefits Now website for Los Angeles County residents to apply for and to view their benefits online. You can use this website to apply for CalFresh, General Relief, CalWORKs, and Medi-Cal. CalFresh is also known as SNAP or food stamps. It provides monthly benefits on a plastic Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which you can use to buy food at grocery stores, farmers markets and other locations. Click here.
