Sen. Bill Dodd, D-Napa, had his student food-insecurity bill signed by the Governor Gavin Newsom on Tuesday.
The legislation addresses the growing problem of college student food insecurity by ensuring low-income students have reliable access to nutritious food through the Cal Fresh program.
“Food insecurity is a serious problem on California college campuses today and this is an important step to address it,” Sen. Dodd said. “My bill will ensure students of modest means don’t go hungry by making it easier for them to receive public assistance. Students shouldn’t have to starve in order to get an education.”
