Senator Ricardo Lara (Chair of Appropriations) – 916-651-4033 Staff: Lawrence Cooper (Legislative Director)

Hello, my name is __________ and I am a California resident/work at__________. I am calling to urge Senator Ricardo Lara to support AB 292: Time to Eat School Lunch, which is currently in Senate Appropriations.

AB 292 would support student learning, improve student nutrition, and reduce food waste.  It would more efficiently spend valuable state and federal resources that support school lunches.  I hope to count on Senator Lara's support on AB 292 so that it can go for a vote on the Senate Floor.
