Californians, demand solutions to food insecurity
Good food is good health. That's why it's alarming that over 5 million Californians are food insecure — and over 2 million of them are children. In fact, one in eight kids doesn't have access to affordable, nutritious food.signersigner
Imagine the pain of not knowing when you'll eat again ... trying to learn on an empty stomach … or going through a work day without a bite to eat. No one should have to go hungry.
Food insecurity leads people to make unhealthy food choices or worry about not having any food at all. Poor nutrition and stress can lead to more serious issues like obesity, mood disorders, and even substance abuse. Each of these illnesses can cause chronic health problems, making it nearly impossible for a person to sustain their income and health.
