2019 Capitol Action Day

五月 29, 2019

We had a fantastic time at this year’s Capitol Action Day meeting with legislators to discuss anti-hunger budget and policy priorities.

These priorities include enhancing food bank capacity, ensuring a smooth rollout for the CalFresh expansion to SSI recipients, expanding funding for CalRecycle, and enhancing economic security for working families. For a further breakdown of legislative priorities, 点击这里.

We honored Assemblymember Buffy Wicks, AD 15, Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes, AD 47, Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman, AD 13, and Assemblymember Marc Berman, AD 24, for their ongoing commitment to ending hunger in California.

In her remarks, Assemblymember Wicks emphasized her belief that access to food is a human right.

Assemblymember Berman spoke to the importance of making sure no one has to choose between paying rent and feeding their family.

Assemblymember Eggman made connections between fighting food insecurity and fighting the proliferation of food waste.

Assemblymember Reyes reiterated her commitment to helping Californians live with dignity.
