CFC Supports AB 2720 (Perez) – Food Access

Status:  AB 2720 passed the Appropriations committee on 5/28 and is on its second reading in the Assembly Floor.

Summary: AB 2720 would require the Department of Food and Agriculture provide recommendations to the Legislature regarding actions that need to be taken to promote food justice in the state.  AB 2720 will be an important first step towards improving the critical relationship between farmer and consumer.  This enhanced relationship would help accomplish important food justice goals including: promotion and protection of California’s agricultural industry and land as well as ensuring better access to fresh and healthy food, especially in underserved urban areas.
