Count Me In: Expand Access to School Meals

Across California, more than 1.7 million California households with children struggle to put food on the table. School meals are extremely effective at fighting the devastating effects of child hunger. The time is right for California to broaden the reach of schools meals.

SB 138 (McGuire) would increase access to school meals by implementing Medi-Cal Direct Certification statewide and call upon very high poverty schools to offer free school meals to all students.
