School Meals for All Celebration at LAUSD

On December 7th, Los Angeles Unified – the state’s largest school district – hosted California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, Senator Maria Elena Durazo, Assemblymembers Luz Rivas and Miguel Santiago, and Kat Taylor along with members of the School Meals for All Coalition to celebrate and showcase California’s landmark investments in providing every K-12 student free, nutritious meals.

“We are now able to freshly prep food like we did 20 years ago,” says John Liechty Middle School Cafeteria Manager Rosa Garcia. “Making meals available for all children makes me proud.”

With the opportunity to transform school food and expand the many co-benefits of more freshly prepared California-grown school meals, the School Meals For All sponsors are visiting school districts and farms across the state to spotlight successful nutrition programs and learn how we can continue to advocate on their behalf.
