The #COVID19 pandemic is making it even more difficult for many Californians to safely access the food they need.

Advocates in California and across the nation are fighting to stop this rule and reduce harm. Together we can #ProtectFamilies.

The best way to build a strong country is to ensure that the families who live here—who are woven into the success of our communities—have the tools they need to thrive. When immigrants succeed, all our communities succeed. Join us to #ProtectFamilies → www.protectingimmigrantfamilies.org

BREAKING: the Trump admin just finalized its "public charge" rule—a race motivated wealth test on immigrant families seeking a healthy, stable future in the US. If this goes into effect, it would have a devastating impact on millions.

We WILL fight back. Stay tuned for updates.

Child care providers take on many roles. They are teachers. They are mothers. They are nurses when they need to be. In California – where over 20% of children live in poverty – they are also a safety net for the children in their care. Show your appreciation for all that they do by asking the legislature to more adequately compensate child care providers for serving healthy meals to low-income kids. https://cfpa.net/may-10th-call-in-day/

California has the lowest (!) senior CalFresh access rate in the US, leaving 1 million+ #hungry & frustrated.

How’d we get here? Confusing paperwork. Physical hurdles. And a bureaucracy that leaves seniors behind. We can do better. Call your State Senator & ask them to pass #SB285 (Wiener). More info at www.cfpa.net/sb285

Great post by Alex Boskovich Alameda County Community Food Bank about AB 842 and why its so important to provide our youngest learners guaranteed access to a meal. Check it out and learn how you too can support access to meals for low-income children in preschool and child care by visiting www.cfpa.net/ab842

For years, I have advocated for the basic needs of children in Alameda County. It's quite simple, really. There is a mountain of evidence that demonstrates a clear linkage between consistent access to the essentials like food, health care, housing, and education, and a child's future outlook. Ensure...

One in five Californians are living with a past criminal conviction, 76% of whom have experienced barriers to success (trouble securing housing, employment, and access to education). The barriers are even higher for people of color and those just returning to their communities following a period of incarceration.

SNAP/CalFresh provides some needed stability for those struggling to overcome their past convictions. USDA proposed SNAP rule threatens to take that away.
