Kim McCoy Wade

Chief of the CalFresh Branch for CDSS

Contra Costa County, CA

The expansion of CalFresh will make it easier for hundreds of thousands of Californians to get the healthy food they need, and GetCalFresh going statewide makes it much easier for all Californians to apply. Combining the two efforts really supports the vision of a California for all.

I am grateful the partnership with Code for America has given us the ability to deliver tangible results for members of our community by dismissing old marijuana convictions allowed under the law. The removal of these convictions effectively reduces barriers to licensing, education, housing and employment.
