Panic In California As Thousands Of Food Stamps Cards Suffer Brief Outage


UPDATE: Michael Weston of the state Department of Social Services reported Tuesday afternoon that all of the cancelled cards were successfully reactivated at 8 a.m.

About 37,000 Californians who receive food stamps are currently unable to access their benefits after their electronic benefit cards were accidentally cancelled on Sunday.

Eighteen counties, including Orange County, administer the state’s food stamp program, known at the state level as CalFresh (and known federally as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP) through a computer application called CalWIN(CalWORKS Information Network).
