Don't Make Hunger a School Choice

All students deserve equitable access to the basic resources that support their success, including school meals. California charter schools are public schools. They enroll more than 340,000 students whose families are struggling to make ends meet. These students, unlike all other low-income, public school students in California, are not granted the right to school meals.

AB 1871 would ensure that all low-income, public school students in California- including charter school students- have access to at least one nutritious, free or low-cost school meal each school day.
