Nourish California 2021 State Legislative Agenda

Published on Jan 4, 2021 in Adults, CalFresh, Child Nutrition, Immigrants, Older Adults, School-Aged Children, State Legislation, Young Children


Everyone in California should have the food they need to thrive. From school closures to widespread layoffs,  the COVID-19 pandemic makes it even harder for many Californians to safely access nutritious food and other basic needs. We need policies that mitigate the scope and scale of harm by creating new resources for food, increasing existing supports, and minimizing barriers to both.

What’s Next?

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to make clear, meeting the nutritional needs of low-income households is an urgent and ongoing need. We are calling on our state leaders to take the bold actions needed to alleviate food insecurity during, and following the pandemic. We look forward to working with existing and new partners to cultivate policies that disrupt poverty, end hunger, and extend equitable opportunity to all.
