Safe Drinking Water for Food Insecure Families

Water in the homes of more than 1 million Californians repeatedly failed tests for safe drinking in 2014. This situation is especially dire for the tens of thousands of affected households that are living at or near the poverty line. For these Californians, having to purchase drinking water puts already limited household budgets – including food budgets -- under additional strain. An interim, supplemental benefit for drinking water could help ensure that unsafe water systems do not exacerbate hunger or food insecurity.
