Join us on July 20th to thank Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Diane Feinstein for working hard to keep our state strong and to ask for their continued support in prioritizing the things Californians need during this crisis — like access to food — throughout the pandemic and until the economy recovers.
Senate Republicans are expected to soon release their COVID-19 recovery package and we anticipate that it will fall short of meeting the full scale of need Californians are experiencing. California’s Senators have vocalized their support for critical anti-hunger programs, including a 15% boost to SNAP. Join us in asking for them to keep up the fight and to continue prioritizing critical hunger relief in the next recovery package.
FRAC is hosting an Anti-Hunger “Rolling Rally” on Monday, July 20th to tell the Senate it must act quickly to pass a COVID-19 relief package that delivers hunger relief. CFPA urges Californians to participate. Here is how to join:
