(KTXL) — People who have CalFresh benefits can get some of their food replaced if they lost food due to the power outages in the region.
A form will need to be completed, signed and turned in, which includes contact information, a short description of how the food was lost and the date and time of the power outage.
To begin the process, people can contact their local county office.
People have up to 10 days after the food was lost to request the replacement.

The storm that rocked the Sacramento region knocked out power to about 300,000 people. At one point, close to 350,000 people were without power overnight. The Sacramento Municipal Utility District, the main electricity provider in the area, reported more than 200,000 customers were without power Sunday afternoon.
California will be entering its third week of winter storms. Gov. Gavin Newsom warned Californians to remain “hyper-vigilant” as strong winds and heavy rain will continue to hit the state.
