AB 311 and SB 245: CA Food Assistance Program

These two bills are the same.  They would remove the age limit (55 years of age or older) and make any individual eligible for the food whose immigration status is the sole basis for the ineligibility. Immigrant status is the sole basis for their ineligibility. Catholic Social Teaching “For I Was Hungry & You Gave Me Food.” The right to a truly human life logically leads to the right to enough food to sustain a life with dignity. The poverty and hunger that diminish the lives of millions in our own land and in so many other countries are fundamental threats to human life and dignity and demand a response from believers.
