Last Call for Nutrition Incentives!

In this Article:

Hello friends:

The proposal to put $2.5 million in the budget for Nutrition Incentives is in its final moments of debate!

Nutrition incentives funding would involve the state providing $2.5 million that would draw down an additional $2.5 million from the federal government . That’s a total of $5 million that we could use in the state of California to fund programs like Market Match, that create incentives for low income people to be able to afford fresh fruits and vegetables.

Everybody wins---California’s farmers struggling with the drought: low income people who receive CalFresh, struggling to make ends meet: and our health system, with one more tool to use against diabetes and obesity.

Please call them today---leave a message if you need to , since of course it’s Sunday. Or---call them Monday but call as early as you can.
