Action Needed: AB 2449 in Senate Appropriations


8.7.2014 On Monday, August 4,  AB 2449 (Bocanegra) Adequate Time to Eat was placed in the Senate Appropriations suspense file, to be heard by the Committee next week. Immediate advocacy is needed to ensure this bill moves on to the Senate Floor! AB 2449 would ensure that students have enough time to sit down and eat a nutritious lunch at school- at least 20 minutes after receiving a school meal. It emphasizes the crucial role of nutrition in supporting academic achievement and student health. We'd like to thank Assembly Member Bocanegra and all of our partners whose hard work ensured AB 2449's success thus far!
