On Friday, May 20th, the #Food4All Coalition hosted a press conference in partnership with the LA Regional Food Bank to urge Governor Newsom to include full funding for Food4All in the final enacted 2022-23 state budget. This was our first in-person Food4All coalition event, and we were so grateful to be in community with such incredible advocates and community leaders.
Speakers included our budget champion Assemblymember Miguel Santiago; community members and advocates Ilyas Chao, Graciela, and Sonia Guiñansaca, Betzabel Estudillo, Benyamin Chao, and Derek Polka.
We had a great coalition presence with Food4All signs and our very first banner! Thank you Latino Coalition for a Healthy California, Visión y Compromiso, Hunger Action LA, National Health Foundation, Gender Justice LA, WORKS, UCLA Labor Center, and many others for attending this event. This work would not be possible without community members and advocates who shared their expertise and stories.
We had great media turnout with seven media outlets covering the press conference. Check out Food4All in the media here!
