The mission of A Better Course is to improve the nutrition children receive in public programs and at home so they can be healthier, learn more, and better achieve their dreams. We do this through research, analysis, advocacy, and direct partnerships with school districts. Specifically, ABC focuses 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.
