How to Complete Form FNS-252-2


On August 28, 2012, the Health and Human Services Agency began recruiting restaurants for the new Restaurant Meals Program (RMP) in San Diego County.  The RMP was officially launched for eligible recipients in February 2013.  As part of Live Well, San Diego! and our efforts to support positive, healthy choices, the RMP offers options for individuals who may have difficulty preparing meals for themselves or do not have a place to store and cook food.

The RMP allows elderly, disabled and homeless individuals and their spouses receiving benefits to use their Golden State Advantage (EBT) cards to purchase meals from participating restaurants.  For all other CalFresh recipients, the federal rules preventing the purchase of prepared food still apply.
