Welcome to the Far North & CA Higher Education CalFresh Outreach Monthly Email. The purpose of this email is to provide CalFresh related information, upcoming webinars, and reminders. 

CalFresh Outreach Subcontractor Summit
We have 60 people registered and have room for more registrations! Feel free to invite students and/or partners. As a reminder, the Summit is on March 5, 2019 in Sacramento and is coming together. We have confirmed the following guest speakers; Caitlin Docker from Code for America, Edith Martinez from CA Association of Food Banks, Jessica Bartholow from Western Center on Law & Poverty. We will have a panel group of subcontractors sharing how they got started with CFO. We will also have subs sharing their best practices as well as a regional activity. You won't want to miss this event.

The Summit will convene the day before the statewide 2019 CalFresh Forum on March 6. Please keep in mind that many of you included this travel cost when developing your CFO Budgets. For registration and hotel information, click on this link.
CSU, Chico's Center for Healthy Communities Receives Unprecedented Food Security Contract through the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) to fund a three-year CalFresh Outreach (CFO) contract with 40 California university and college campuses and five far north community organizations. “Though the reach is now much greater, this is essentially an expansion of the program we developed here at Chico State. We are sharing what we’ve learned here with other campus communities about reaching hungry students and helping them meet basic needs like having enough healthy food to get through each day" (Jenny Fales). 

Civil Rights & Confidentiality Training Webinar: Completing Confidentiality and Civil Rights trainings are part of your subcontractor requirements for this year, so we will be hosting a Confidentiality and Civil Rights Training webinar on March 15th @ 10am to help you complete them. As per the California Department of Social Services, your entire team is required to complete both types of training (each section is about 30 minutes long). If you are unable to have your team participate on this date, a recording of this will be available so that your outreach teams can complete at your convenience. Proof of completing these trainings will be due with your Quarter 2 reports (by April 15th), and we will provide a checklist after the webinar so that you can track all that is needed on our end. Please make sure to register here to gain access to this webinar.

You are now able to see CFO Webinar videos on the CHC YouTube Page. Click on this link to see the CFO Webinar Playlist. Webinars will be uploaded here within a day of taking place.
