The unit also works closely with community-based organizations to provide funding, technical assistance, and support with work related to Medi-Cal, Covered California, and CalFresh. The unit is the primary facilitator for the following coalitions: Covered Mendocino, Food For All Mendocino, and Healthy Kids Mendocino.

- Available to eligible low-income individuals and families. Food stamps may be used to purchase food in markets that accept food stamps.
