Budget Advocacy: Invest in School Meals for All

Children who are well nourished can learn, grow, and achieve at their fullest potential. Offering school meals free of charge to all students helps protects kids from hunger, stigma, California’s unrelentingly high costs of living, and federal policies that are undermining the availability and adequacy of other public nutrition programs.

With a state budget allocation, the California Legislature can make targeted investments to enable the implementation of universally free breakfast and lunch in schools where there is a substantial need among students but federal rules make the provision of universally free meals unattainable or unsustainable for school districts and charter schools.

Take Action!
