Julian Castro Unveils Anti-Hunger Plan

2019-12-16

Presidential Candidate Julian Castro announced his People First Plan to End Hunger in America. In addition to expanding SNAP and WIC, the widely encompassing plan increases school meal reimbursement rates, lowers the Identified Student Percentage threshold to participate in CEP to zero percent, and expands summer meals. The plan also rolls back meal pattern flexibilities granted since passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. In addition, the Plan expands certain tax credits and benefits and establishes universal pre-K and childcare.
