A Better Course strategically selects and designs on-the-ground programs, conducts research, analysis, and advocates for improved nutrition for low-income children and families. Specifically, we work on improving access to healthy foods through public programs such as school meals, CalFresh, and making that food safer by advocating to improve transparency in our food system regarding allergens, pesticides and GMOs.

We are grateful to our partners and funders, without whom the work would not be possible.
