Tell Governor Brown that Healthy Food Affordability is a Priority
Join us in calling on the Governor to approve the Legislature's one-time $9 million
the California Fruit & Vegetable EBT Pilot to increase market access to affordable, California-grown produce
Watch the video below of Senate Budget Committee Chair Holly Mitchell and Senator Scott Wiener speak on the Senate Floor in support of including funding for the California Fruit & Vegetable EBT Pilot in the 2018-19 state budget.
This one-time funding will be used to upgrade the CalFresh EBT system to allow for dollar-for dollar matching CalFresh benefits upon the purchase of California-grown fresh fruits and vegetables. The pilot will be implemented and evaluated in multiple California communities at different types of retailers, including grocery stores and farmers' markets.
It only takes a minute to make your voice heard. Once you've taken action, spread the word!
Let the Governor know you support the California Fruit & Vegetable EBT Pilot.
