California, a state with the nation’s highest poverty rate, consistently ranks near the bottom when it comes to enrolling low-income people in CalFresh, the state’s name for the federal food stamp program.

Laura Pinches: how about getting a job and earning money to buy food instead of looking for a damn hand out!

sticky: lol the illegal alien's have no problem getting them and selling them for half price.

StephanieJ: Stop all these entitlements force people.to take responsibility for their own lives like most of us have.

User from CA: Blame the Dems

User from CA: Lmfao @ “we would need to hire more staff to fix this issue”! That’s bull. As it is, at least in Tulare county I know for a fact they just sit there and twiddle their thumbs most of the day.

the illegals work for money under the table and send their government checks back home, that's why you'll see 10 people living in a two bedroom trailer.

California employers should pay us more then...its already expensive enough to live here, gas is crazy high, and food prices fuxuate...some people may work there asses off everyday and still need help! Don't be quick to judge people, because you really don't know what they are going through!

Say you are illegal. You would also get healthcare free ,a home to live in ,free eye vision care and most definitely you’ll get food stamps

it pretty dumb the way they do things, the requirements for income is the worst - everything is BEFORE TAX and other deductible
