Nutrition Fuels Education: Resources for High-Poverty Schools

Hungry students cannot learn, grow, or achieve at their fullest potential. Low-income students and high-poverty schools need access to education resources – and those resources should include nutrition. Provision 2 and the Community Eligibility Provision improve low-income students'access to school meals while decreasing burdens on families, schools, and school districts. More than 3 million students in California are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. Like all students, they deserve to be well nourished and fueled for success.

California's Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the federal school nutrition programs both aim to provide low-income students with access to essential resources. Provision 2 and the Community Eligibility Provision are federally authorized administrative options that increase access to free school meals for students attending high-poverty schools.

Making LCFF compatible with Provision 2 and the Community Eligibility Provision will ensure that both state and federal resources are directed where they are needed the most.
