Good FoodA Vision for "Good Food" for Public Health

The foundation of a sustainable community-based food system is built on healthy and diverse natural resources. This report, co-authored by CANFIT's Executive Director, develops a snapshot of the food system, the public benefits for a sustainable food system, a Good Food Checklist and more.

Legislative Corner  xxxxxxxx

In California, AB346, the Joint-use School Facilities bill, is currently in the Senate Appropriations Committee.  This bill expands the types of projects eligible for the state-funded joint-use grant programs.  

Last month we introduced you to S1406 and H2997 which will expand the Afterschool Meal Program beyond the current 10 states. Both have passed with differences between the two bills currently being negotiated.

Locate your state and federal legislators to let them know how you stand on these bills.
