Civil engineering group gives school infrastructure a D+ grade, and says "a large portion of the system exhibits significant deterioration.” We've known that schools need infra improvements for a long time. #ChangeForGood https://t.co/46rYADIScr

The CA Senate Education Committee heard testimony & unanimously voted in favor of the “School Meals for All Act of 2021"(SB 364). The bill is one step closer to improving student outcomes, reducing stigma, & helping school food service workers and farmers: https://t.co/uHrS2a6TBN

The science says it’s about more than just getting kids back in the classroom – it’s about making sure they’re socially, emotionally, and mentally prepared. Our COVID-19 Handbook Vol. 2 put all that science in one place to help schools who need it most. https://t.co/suO1eV049B https://t.co/yL4U361HFc

Environmental racism is especially harmful to the well-being of BIPOC children because kids take in more air, food, and water as a proportion of their body weight and are less able to break down toxins. #NPHW https://t.co/ok2mjrMVgS

Food banks are another essential component of the food security net for children and families. Interesting look at Chicago's @FoodDepository from @aliciaparlap and @qdbui @UPshotNYT. https://t.co/SEuez0lRfk

.@JasonDeParle's big look at #Biden's approach to poverty and food assistance programs notes that the summer extension of #P-EBT, the replacement for school meals, could lead to lasting change - a win for child hunger advocates. https://t.co/XYWReCpXZg
