Take a few minutes to say thanks for funding Food4All, and we need long-term commitments
The 2021-22 state budget includes funding to begin implementation of the Food4All proposal. The funding and accompanying trailer bill language will move the state toward the modernized California Food Assistance Program (CFAP) proposed in SB 464 (Hurtado). We applaud the Governor and Legislature for prioritizing a permanent solution to the immigrant exclusion in CalFresh.
California is now poised to lead the way by advancing bold policy solutions like Food4All that reject racism and xenophobia by creating an equitable nutrition safety net.
The legislature and Governor deserve significant thanks for taking this first major step toward an equitable nutrition safety net. They also need to hear from you that further long-term investments are needed. Please take a few minutes to thank the budget leaders who took this first big step, and ask them to continuing prioritizing Food4All funding next year.
