For some, loss of income is the largest barrier to meeting their food needs. Those who are facing such circumstances can seek help from Marin HHS’s Public Assistance Programs, including:
Applications for Medi-Cal, CalWORKS and CalFresh are accepted by phone at 1-877-410-8817 or online. In addition, potential applicants can pick up a paper application in English or Spanish outside of the Marin HHS offices at 120 N. Redwood Drive or 3240 Kerner Boulevard in San Rafael.
WIC applications are accepted over the phone by calling 415-473-6889. General Relief applications can be obtained at the locations noted above or by calling 415-473-3350.
Those already enrolled in CalFresh can review a list of local retailers who accept EBT cards through an online EBT locator.
Those who are unable to access any of the resources above and have no other safe means to access food can call 415-473-7191, Monday through Friday from 9:30AM to 12:00PM or 1:00PM to 5:00PM to speak to a live person regarding possible food options. Thanks to a partnership with local community organizations, one option available through the call center is a limited supply of grocery bag deliveries will be available beginning April 5 for individuals who do are ineligible for the food options listed above (while supplies last).
