CalFresh eligible and enrolled individuals and families
An impact evaluation on knowledge, attitude, and behavior (KAB) change was conducted from 11/2013-10/2014. No dose-response relationship was found but it did show significant differences in KAB between users and nonusers.
Statistics and Program Impact
71% of EatFresh.org users who are enrolled in CalFresh or another means-tested program have not attended in-person nutrition education classes. This suggests that EatFresh.org is reaching people who would not have access to SNAP-Ed programming otherwise.
EatFresh.org has been integrated into county offices, community-based organizations, food banks, and other agencies across California as a way to support clients in making healthy choices outside of in-person programming.
