Join our movement to provide essential food assistance to California immigrants

Led by Nourish California and the California Immigrant Policy Center (CIPC), the Food4All Coalition is a diverse, robust network of state and local anti-hunger, immigrant rights, and advocacy organizations. Together, we seek to expand the California Food Assistance Program to provide essential food assistance to California immigrants who are ineligible for federal CalFresh due solely to their immigration status.
