There is really no way to get the EDD to pay you benefits while you appeal a determination of ineligibility for unemployment benefits. You need to appeal the decision, make the best argument you can to avoid a finding of misconduct and hope you can succeed. Your income alternatives at this point are forms of public assistance, like food stamps and the like.
Good luck to you.

Appeal the unemployment decision, as there is no downside in doing so and the upside if you prevail is enormous because you will receive the benefits. Consider forms of public assistance if necessary in the interim. Good luck.
