The popular California state senate district 25 Candidate, Chris Chahinian announces his plan to eliminate poverty and hunger in California State. A recent Census Bureau report reveals that nearly a quarter of California’s 38 million population lives in poverty. The poverty level in the state is the highest in the U.S at 26%. Millions of children live in poverty or near poverty conditions. As Californian’s are struggling to put food on their table, same time food wastage in the state is the highest in the nation. The estimated amount of feed wastage in California can feed millions.
Chris Chahinian says, “It is our moral responsibility to feed the needy when we have the means to. Leaving any child hungry when there is food to spare is a shame,” said Chris Chahinian, “If as a state we have the highest level of food wastage in the nation and at the same time the highest population percentage in poverty, then something is wrong somewhere. I want to fix it.”
Chris Chahinian said, “My plan is to propose and pass a new law for banning farmers, supermarkets, and grocery stores from throwing away or destroying unsold food. We will need to build partnerships with charitable organizations to distribute the recovered food to needy families. This bill will apply to those who have more than 5,000 sq. ft. stores and more than 100 acres of farmland. Charitable organizations must have proper licensing, permits, and the correct equipment to transport the food. They will receive a tax write-off, people will be fed, and it will stop food waste. We will create new jobs and improve our economy.”
Through tax write-off, charitable organizations will be encouraged to have the proper licensing, permits and the needed equipment to transport food which could have been wasted. Jobs will be created as a ripple effect of the initiative. The legislation with put an end to the food wastage in the state and eradicate hunger.
