2017 Partner Highlights
CFPA had the privilege of working with many skilled and connected partners in 2017. Some of our partnerships are formal, while others have sprung up from shared visions and collective actions. Recognizing the limitations of space, we wanted to highlight a few partnership:
No Kid Hungry California: A close partner, co-sponsor, and ally in the successful effort to reach 2,000 hunger free schools in California.
The California Immigrant Policy Center: We worked closely to address fears and concerns about immigrant access to food. CIPC is the driving force behind the efforts to extend #food4all regardless of immigration status.
California Hunger Action Coalition: As a founding member and recent co-chair, we have a long history of with CHAC. Hunger Action Day continues to be an annual highlight.
Similarly, ENACT Day 2017 was a terrific success thanks to partners like CA4Health, CSU Chico-Center for Healthy Communities, California Pan-Ethnic Health Network, Prevention Institute, Public Health Advocates, Public Health Institute, Safe Routes to School National Partnership, and others.
In local communities, we are pleased to partner with allied organizations like San Diego Hunger Coalition, and we continue to be energized and inspired by our work with UC San Diego Youth.
Some of our local partners such as the Family Resource and Referral Center of San Joaquin seem to do it all. They have partnered with us advocate for increased access to healthy food in the nation's capitol, in Sacramento, and in their own backyard.
In advancing our Farm Bill priorities, we get to work with long-time partners like the San Joaquin Hunger Task Force while developing new relationships with organizations like Faith in the Valley and the Veterans Transition Center.
