• EBT CalFresh Card Pay

Using Your Benefits

Quest LogoCalFresh benefits are deposited electronically onto an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. The EBT card works the same as an ATM card and is accepted at most grocery stores and at many farmers markets, convenience stores and even select online retailers like Amazon and Wal-Mart. The EBT card can be used at any store or market that dispays the Quest® logo.
