LAUSD School Board Runoffs: Candidates Weigh in on Food Policy

Runoff Election on Tuesday, May 16, 2017

To help members of the LAFPC Network make informed voting decisions, the Los Angeles Food Policy Council invited all of the candidates running for Los Angeles Unified School District’s school board to share their vision for how LAUSD can build on existing initiatives and/or create even more innovative solutions to promote Good Food for all.

Each candidate was sent a food policy briefing with five questions that were created with input from the Los Angeles Food Policy Council’s diverse network of food system organizations. With runoffs for Districts 4 and 6, we are sharing their statements once again.  Please click on the images below to read each candidate’s statement on school food policy.

For more information about the upcoming election and voter registration, please visit the LA County Registrar-Recorder’s website.  To find out which LAUSD Board of Education district you are in, check your election ballot or visit the LAUSD website.
