The County Specific Data tool was developed by Diana Jensen, Senior Policy and Data Analyst at SF Marin Food Bank. Using the most up-to-date data from the CDSS CalFresh Data Dashboard, Diana created a three page report showing performance of one county over time, including comparisons to the performance of the state as a whole and the best-performing county of similar CalFresh caseload size. Trends and comparisons are included for Overall Participation, Timeliness, Dual Enrollment and Churn.
