Tell Your Senators: Build Back Better by Investing in Child Nutrition


The U.S. House of Representatives has passed President Biden's Build Back Better Act. The legislation includes a $10 billion investment in child nutrition that would

  • Increase the number of schools that can offer free meals to all students through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

  • Give states, including California, the option to offer free breakfast and lunch to every student by implementing CEP statewide

  • Bring Summer EBT to California -- and expand it nationwide -- for students who receive free or reduced-price school meals

The bill now moves to the Senate. Please urge your Senators to pass the Build Back Better Act with critical funding for child nutrition.

These investments are essential to the well-being of young Californians. You can use Nourish California’s fact sheet to talk about the impacts in your community.
