Everyone in California Should Havethe Food They Need to Thrive.

Nourish California shapes the programs and policies that should connect—but sometimes stand between—people and the food they need to thrive. We work with an urgent focus on improving access to food for Californians who face the greatest needs and the starkest inequities. Our team leads statewide advocacy efforts to end hunger, disrupt poverty, and ensure that all Californians are well nourished. Our work also contributes to a larger movement of individuals, communities, and organizations fighting for human rights, dignity, and justice, both within California and beyond.

Our Vision for A Fair California

Our vision is to create a California where every person has a fair shot at health and happiness.  Our state is home to one of the world’s largest economies and to one of the nation’s highest rates of poverty. Tremendous need in the face of great prosperity is unacceptable.

Millions of our fellow Californians lack access to the resources necessary to meet their most basic needs. All Californians should have equitable opportunities to live the lives they want to lead.  To that end, we advocate smart, evidence-based solutions designed to dismantle the systemic injustices that perpetuate hunger and food insecurity.

While we still have much to do, our impact over the past three decades can be measured in tens of millions of lives uplifted and billions of dollars invested in progressive programs and policies.
