SPUR Supports “Food for All” Budget Investment to Expand Access to the California Food Assistance Program

Policy Letter

SPUR supports an investment in the 2021-2022 Budget Act to create an equitable state food assistance system that does not discriminate on the basis of immigration status by modernizing the California Food Assistance Program to provide state-funded nutrition benefits to any Californian ineligible for CalFresh solely due to their immigration status.  This letter to the chairs of the Assembly and Senate Budget Committee chairs is parallel to related "Food For All" legislation (SB 464).
