Food Insecurity

Fighting to ensure every Californian has increased and equitable access to healthy food by focusing on the issues of food deserts, student hunger, and freshly prepared climate-friendly school meals.

Despite producing nearly half of the nation's fruits and vegetables, one in eight Californians struggle with hunger and lack access to nutritious foods. All people should have equitable access to the resources they need to live healthy, productive lives.
