Say Thanks for Funding Food4All for Undocumented Californians aged 55+
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 immigrants of ALL ages, regardless of immigration status, need access to critical food assistance.
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.
