|Asm. Yamada's food purchases for the week|
Monday's meals were raisin bran and coconut milk for breakfast; yogurt and banana for lunch; egg salad sandwich, grapes, and a chicken drumstick for dinner. Am drinking filtered tap water as I did not find a good deal on coffee this year. I already warned my staff (smile).
With summer vacation, many children who rely upon the free or reduced lunch program during the school year find themselves without basic sustenance. See http://frac.org/pdf/summer_
Tuesday is a difficult day, with committee hearings, Democratic Caucus where I will eat my chicken sandwich and grapes while my colleagues eat our usual nice catered lunch (which the legislators--not the taxpayers--pay for), followed by bill presentations in Senate Human Services and Senate Veterans Affairs.
Additional briefings with staff will be followed by a quick dash to Woodland to attend the Yolo County Farm Bureau meeting recognizing the Future Farmers of America. A perfect group to end the day with since we are focusing, after all, on food.
