SB 138 (McGuire) Moves to the Assembly Floor!

9.1.2017 Thanks to your support, we are just steps away from hunger free schools in California! SB 138 (McGuire) passed out of Assembly Appropriations Committee with a unanimous, bipartisan 16-0 vote! SB 138 would more effectively identify low-income students and increase access to school meals.

We are grateful for Senator McGuire's leadership on SB 138, and thankful that the Assembly Appropriations Committee recognized SB 138’s ability to fight the devastating effects of child hunger while increasing the fiscal viability of school nutrition programs.

Perhaps most of all, we are thankful for all of YOU and the tireless advocacy we have seen across the state to ensure that our children have the nutrition they need to thrive. SB 138 needs your continued support as it moves to the Assembly Floor, and hopefully on to the Governor's desk!
