Donate to Support the Food with Care Campaign
This year, we achieved a longtime goal: the California budget restored funding for child care meals. While we celebrate the success of this long-fought campaign, we also humbly recognize the work ahead. Child care is a critical support for California’s families, but the state's chronic under-investment in this area means that most struggle to find and afford care.
We need to engage policy makers and other stakeholders in supporting greater access to nutritious, affordable meals available in California’s early care and education programs. Our youngest learners deserve access to nutritious meals and our child care workforce needs adequate resources to both offer nutritious meals and meet their own basic needs.
