ELK GROVE, Calif — Governor Gavin Newsom visited Miwok Village Elementary School in Elk Grove to announce the state's multi-billion dollar investment into the public education system.

Gov. Newsom, joined by First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Senator Angelique Ashby, and Assemblymember Stephanie Nguyen, announced an effort to ensure all kids in the state have access to quality education, safety, healthy meals and mental health care.

"Universal school meals, ensuring that no child goes hungry with two free meals in a day. Through farm to school, we're making sure those meals are fresh and nutritious and delicious, locally sourced," said Jennifer Siebel Newsom.

This is through the state's $4.1 billion community school investment that focuses on making sure parents and students are fully involved in having the best education possible.
