All people and communities deserve fair access to nutritious, affordable food.

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.
