The California Department of Social Services says wildfire victims may be eligible to get one month of food stamps through California's Disaster CalFresh program.

Individuals or families negatively impacted by the wildfires who resided or worked in any of the seven impacted counties before the disaster may be eligible for the assistance.

A family of four with a monthly income up to $2,755 a month is eligible to get up to $640 in food assistance.
