Spare Change Music Festival - May 6th 11am to 7pm

The Spare Change Music Festival is a free, all day music festival emphasizing the real change that can happen when people work together and pool their resources. This free, all ages, family friendly community event will feature a compilation of unbelievable musicians, artists and nonprofits all dedicated to educating the community about the realities of the issues facing our communities and environment while providing ideas and solutions. In addition to the educational aspect of the event, the primary goal is to raise money for our featured nonprofits that are addressing these issues around the community and the state by encouraging people to donate their “spare change” they either come with, or that is generated through their purchases from the vendors exhibiting at the event.

Ongoing FREE Tax Preparation Assistance

You can still receive assistance preparing your taxes. Contact Project SCOUT to schedule an appointment.

Introducing the CalFresh Restaurant Meals Program!

Santa Cruz County’s Restaurant Meals Program enables eligible CalFresh recipients to purchase a nutritious prepared meal at participating restaurants with their Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.

Who Can Use the Program
The Restaurant Meals Program is available to persons that receive CalFresh who:

  • Are experiencing homelessness; or
  • Are age 60 or over; or
  • Have a disability.
The EBT cards are electronically tagged if the holder is homeless, disabled, or over 60. Therefore a card for a person without these issues will not work at the restaurants. If you become homeless, contact the county.
Restaurant Meals Program participants can continue to use their CalFresh benefits at grocery stores, farmer’s markets, and other locations that accept EBT cards.

Participating restaurants will have an EBT Cards Accepted Here sign displayed. The following provides current participating restaurants:
