FOOD IS A HUMAN RIGHT

Desde humildes comienzos ...

Alimentando a América Riverside | San Bernardino ( "FARSB" )  comenzó en abril de 1980 como Survive Food Bank distribuyendo alrededor de 10,000 libras de alimentos por mes y asociándose con alrededor de 20 agencias locales sin fines de lucro.  Hoy, FARSB distribuye  2  millones de libras de alimentos al mes y se asocia con más de 250 agencias locales sin fines de lucro.

 

FARSB es uno de los 200 bancos de alimentos afiliados a Feeding America, la Red Nacional de Bancos de Alimentos.  FARSB sirve a los condados de Riverside y San Bernardino, también conocido como Inland Empire .  Hay más de 800.000 personas que viven por debajo del umbral de la pobreza.  en el interior  Empire y más de 400.000 personas que padecen inseguridad alimentaria.  Nuestro banco de alimentos es la organización de alivio del hambre más grande del Inland Empire, con más de 100,000 personas que dependen de nosotros cada mes.

Es un gran trabajo  que no podemos hacerlo sin USTED!

CHILD NUTRITION RECERTIFICATION (CNR)

In 2010, The Child Nutrition Reauthorization (CNR) launched as a five-year termed authorization per national child nutrition programs, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and additional programs that aided federal school meal programs. While most programs are federally authorized, USDA waivers for school meal programs will expire on June 30th, 2022. Suppose the Child Nutrition Reauthorization will not be approved for another five-year term; in that case, children across California will likely lose access to universal school lunches. Additional consequences may include food-insecure families facing another year of steep inflation rates alongside struggling programs. 

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

  • Tell your lawmakers: Passing CNR helps fewer kids have empty tummies. We can end child hunger in the upcoming Child Nutrition Reauthorization process.

SENATE BILL (SB)1383

California's Short-Lived Climate Pollutant Reduction law aims to reduce organic waste disposal and global warming gasses. As of January 1st, 2022 Tier 1 food generators must donate the maximum amount of excess edible food they would otherwise dispose to food recovery organizations such as FARSB. 

Tier 1 Includes:

  • Wholesale food vendors

  • Food distributors

  • Food Service providers

  • Grocery stores or supermarkets

If your organization or business qualifies as a Commercial Edible Food Generator, FARSB can step in to ensure your surplus food donations can go directly to those in need and eliminate food waste.

FARM BILL

The legislative 5-year term Farm Bill, signed into law in 2018, is expected to be evaluated for renewal in 2023. The Farm Bill authorizes  most federal policies governing food, such as crop insurance, environmental efforts, sustainable agriculture, and healthy food. These policies ensure access for low-income families through programs such as SNAP - our country's critical Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

CONTACT CONGRESS

When we dispel misconceptions about government nutrition programs, we can enable more Californians to close the SNAP gap. Qualified neighbors throughout the Inland Empire are less likely to request assistance due to fears of immigration status or minimizing their hunger.

When you access the latest news on our government nutrition programs, you can pass along the knowledge that can immediately change a person's life.
