Help Bring Healthy, Organic, and Climate-Friendly Food to CA Students!

California schools are preparing meals for millions of low-income students and students of color during the COVID-19 pandemic. Given how many California students rely on school meals as their primary source of sustenance, we want them to be as nourishing as possible.

That's why California state leaders recently funded a $8.5 million "Farm-to-School" program.

This critical new program has the potential to provide California's most vulnerable children with healthy, high-quality food so they are ready to learn and thrive in school.

And it can help support local farmers, including farmers of color, bolster economic recovery, and help fight climate change.

So, state leaders must hear from thousands of Californians to ensure that they make this program as health-protective, climate-friendly, and equitable as possible.
