Survey Report on COVID-19 Budget for School Food

School districts need flexible funding to stay open and continue providing essential meals to students.

The Center for Ecoliteracy conducted a survey with public school districts to learn about emergency meal service during the COVID-19 pandemic and their priorities for the revised California state budget. School food service directors responded from 25 public school districts that collectively represent over 400,000 students. Here are a few things we learned:

  • Emergency meal service is causing significant budget deficits.
     
  • School districts need flexible funding in order to stay open and continue providing essential meals to students.
     
  • Fresh and local food procurement provide opportunities to support local economies during this economic crisis.
