The California Food and Justice Coalition has asked for our help as AB 826 moves toward a vote. Details below:
Please Call Your Assembly Member By May 31st!
Thanks to so much support from CFJC’s members and friends the California Farm to School Child Nutrition Improvement Act (AB 826) was passed out of the Assembly Appropriations Committee on May 25th. The bill has received broad and bi-partisan support so far and is now headed to the Assembly Floor for a vote next week. This critical vote by every member of the Assembly will determine if the Senate will hear AB 826. Please speak up to support farm to school in California!
Call Script: “My name is ________ and I am from your district. I am calling to ask that Assembly Member __________ VOTE YES on AB 826 – the California Farm to School Child Nutrition Improvement Act – when it comes to the floor. Farm to School programs are a win-win for farmers and schools alike because they increase access to fruits and vegetables, while increasing farmer income at the same time. AB 826 supports farmers and schools looking to make these innovative connections.”
