Please Stand up for California's Kids
Dear [Decision Maker],
SB 138 by Senator McGuire is a critical tool to fight child hunger. Not only does this bill make it possible to connect 650,000 more eligible low-income students to free and reduced-price school meals, but it will also bring an estimated $15 million in federal funds to California.School meals are an essential strategy to end child hunger in California and they make a huge difference for students' academic performance, health and well being. In fact, studies show that kids who eat school breakfast attend an average of 1.5 more days of school per year, score 17.5 percent higher on math tests and are 20 percent more likely to graduate high school.Please help to connect California's most vulnerable kids to healthy school meals by signing SB 138!
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
