done the problems are in december we were issued the notice by the fire department in january to have a 24 watch until the problem is corrected we believe i can confirm we're almost at the end of fixing the leaks. >> so in replacing this system i guess in the future is there anything being done now sort of fixing the leaks that guess actually be used or somehow reduce the pricing the system for different things. >> i don't believe so unfortunately my understanding unfortunately, the pipes the underground pipes that have the ability to bring the water into the super bay is in existence since 1969 the system will replace the existing system. >> thank you. >> okay. any future questions
2:05 am
or comments little known fact my mother and supervisor tang's mother worked out together fixing the safety requirements there. >> yeah. they're both retired okay to your report please. ms. wagner covered most of it in the report the work performed is to be plowed beginning in march though june of this year and the fire watch to continue until june of 2017 excuse me - january of 2017 as ms. wagner said the total cost is $4.3 million 200 and 85 less than the engineering and complies with the administrative code with the emergency contract features. >> thank you very much colleagues, any questions okay. we'll move on to public comment anyone wish to comment on item 6?
2:06 am
seeing none, public comment is closed colleagues motioned and i'd like to move it to i move we send it to the full board with a positive recommendation we'll take that without objection. >> all right. madam clerk now we're down to two hearings call the first item 7. >> item 7 hearing on the office of early care for the citywide plan financing the elements and the education reports. >> thank you very much this item was supported by supervisor yee so we'll i turn this over to him. >> thank you chair farrell as you may know this the week of i did not know child to no betterment to ask this particular early care and education citywide plan it is a time to acknowledge the value of young children and those that educate the youngest learners
2:07 am
but investing in the early care and education is an investment in families and the city research shows providing quality early care and education has a tremendous impact on the growth and impact of children but the families stability and the economy from our accountability of public dollars addressing when children are most rapidly developing has the greatest return in investments it provides for economic sustainability as families are able to return to work and we must recognize that majority of d.c. workforce are women and women of color from an entity lens they must be able to take care of their families with the
2:08 am
passage of prop c in 2014 the children's initiative san francisco commits 25 years of investments and career with the alignment of stronger systems and collaboration to better provide for san francisco families an early care and education was directed to expand the scope if preschool to early education meaning zero to 4 yesterday the board do board honors an early care education to dedicate her professional career in dedicating the most vulnerable children and families today, i call this hearing during the week of young child for the upper sunnydale of the office of early care and education for zero to 5 years old the recommendations in how
2:09 am
we can improve and build on the investment it create a better system to serve all the youngest children and on top of that it's another reason why a good week barb our current director of office of education who has provided the leadership that it takes to make all this happen happens to be the last week on her job we'll be sad i want to say that now to the public i will be i think the public will be sad that we will no longer have her leadership after this week but today is about this hearing barbara carson. >> thank you supervisor yee and supervisor farrell and supervisor tang for allowing us to present the plan as you may know we're required to submit this plan per prop k i'll be
2:10 am
prefrnt a high-level of review with the enforced realms from the advisory committee the full plan was databases will be valuable in 4 weeks give you a little bit of background this is a planning process that everyone participated in enthusiastically and took seriously city staff. >> wonderful advisory committee, the community in many formats or forums participated in many meetings over the past year as a highlight our cap meets 4 times and year and met 14 times since last april i want to say there are too big tossing everyone took it as an opportunity to step back and look at it what we have done in san francisco and figure out how
2:11 am
to take it to scale and stop thinking incremental and recognize the excellence that happens in programs like the fee wamgz and the preschool for all it is nationally recognized and how those lessons can be applied i think you'll hear testimony supporting the bigger picture and there will be a lot of information coming over the next several months an analysis that will be helpful to you as you go through the budget process he'll launch into the recommendations the first thing to emphasize we have had many, many meetings office staff and other staffs and met with dcyf the first development of the recommendations we set to the advisory committee and as those recommendations were enforced we
2:12 am
brought those back for feedback and made significant changes to the plans based on some of the feedback in resulting in the recommendations cat has endorsed the recommendations so our first set of recommendations around the system that supervisor yee into custody prop c directions us to look at broadly of the services for the zero to 5 years old in the city the first to build a system that enables all families with kids zero to 5 with the services to develop mechanisms to achieve continuous continuity of care for zero to 5 years old this night families came out so strongly on over the past year our federal and state subsidy programs to create clips where families fell avenue eligibility and with community and families feel strongly we need to work
2:13 am
with the city funds to bridge the gaps to kids have a could a have continuous eligibility it is data driven and improved observing outcome next slide we're required by prop k to look at racial entity and diversity el cap wanted to go a high-level in feeling the kindergarten readiness it the measure to look across all income and racial groups so the recommendation is that the city adopt one kindergarten readiness standard that measures the kindergarten readiness that's the kindergarten form analyzed by the school district several times we will be moving to do that on a regular basis to measure not only in literacy and
2:14 am
math but motorist development and social and mediation development we'll targeted populations that in the past have shown kindergarten readiness is a challenge nothing new to the board you've heard this in many testimonies over the time certainly i've been working in the city but in particular african-american children, latino children, dual language learners and children with disabilities having produceable u trouble meeting did readiness standard we can do better those are the same groups of kids we are targeting in hope sf and starting to measure our folks in this area qualify improvement recommendations you, i may have heard from testimony of first 5
2:15 am
over the past couple of years we're implementing here in san francisco something called a rating improvement system that was mandate as part of race to the top early challenge guatemala if so the direction the federal government is moving in to measure quality and seeking to increase the flexibility and use it as a way to measure quality across the board and make sure that we're offering resources to meet a minimum standard the task force feels strongly we require all providers for the district of columbia services meet an agreed on standard in other words, to qualify and we'll offer researchers to make sure they get there the family engagement this is the place we worked with the families in the communities we have broths in the recommendations in this area based on the feedback we got
2:16 am
from families in particular i'd like to highlight the second well the first item including the families are equal partners but the gaps and reflect that value at the program level and our system level in all our oversight groups and to insure the access to make sure that families who want this program get them and make sure that the families get resources and referrals to make sure and was move forward with the systems we're incorporating family engagement there and that we have families involved with the decision making pursue so, now i'll move to an area which you heard a lot about i'm sure the was this and education staff in san francisco we started to do analysis looking at the gaps in was this and in the gaps in terms of the cost of quality this slide shows you the wage of
2:17 am
a current education teacher $35,000 plus per year and what b.a. level teachers at the school district k through 8 through k through 12 is $46,000 plus if you are a school district and teaching in an early child you do better than 35 but not 44 those are the was this we're paying in san francisco to our teachers that are taking care of the youngest kids and expecting them to do even more as we measure our results more regularly as time goes on a gap we need to move towards our first recommendation in the office of economic workforce development to develop strategies to support encyclopedias pair did i with the k through 8 staff we can't
2:18 am
do it over submitted i've talked with the mayor we need to look at we works and what we can leverage better at the state and federal level then begin to move our teachers to live and work in san francisco the second set of recommendations has to do with with developing a system we have a lot of components that address professional development in san francisco we've got a higher ed component and training and technical assistants want to move toward developing a system that addresses the needs of workforce professionals in particular these who are involved in providing caregiver exempt care that is give by families and friends and is paid for by public dollars we'll to
2:19 am
start to address many instances the next category of care and address the needs o those providers as well as doing more in terms of system building for the school staff and caregiver providers moving to the next slide we've engaged in a pretty comprehensive analysis in the past year one of the things inch set out to do two years ago to look at what we have in the city in terms of revenue how much is it federal and state and how much is local which of the local programs are getting which providers closer to the cost of the providing care this slide with one example of the analysis that we did as you can see we talked earlier about moving towards the minimum level of quality so if you look at the red line on this slide this
2:20 am
indicates the total per child annual expense for tier 3 the middle of the quality improvement system a 5 point system and that's the cost to get and infant provider to tier 3 and as you can see we don't have any providers we're making at this point in time so we have significant gaps probably the largest gap with the programs that are contracted our title 5 programs that are serving the total population of the kids didn't we have sixth gaps and how we can move towards addressing those in the next up to this point in time our recommendation in this area is not only to increase the resources you see on the left that is obviously necessary but also restructuring the system we have now to make it simple letter and easier for families to use and determine the funding based on the cost of
2:21 am
providing qualify as defined in the system measuring the system with the q r s system driving the investments and organizing the funding to direct services and system supports we now have a number of programs we can give you more information on that if you like to be briefed in the future on the fiscal analysis and streamline the reporting requirements and that we want to integrate all of the systems and link those supports to the quality rating that we mentioned earlier so that's it for our recommendations this plan really, really represents moving to the next level and taking the good experience we have here in san francisco and with our preschool for all program our c was this program and taking it to a point all kids zero to 5 assess the
2:22 am
quality we have a office of economic workforce development crisis in the ac a area one of the things i've done every weekday i look at craigslist for the early education countless positions open all the time i'm sure you'll hear today staff cannot afford to work and commute and certainly live in san francisco with the was this we're paying and not to the point where we can provide quality across the board this is a bicyclist will take a period of time this is the direction our community and our city staff and folks would like to go in. >> thank you very much ms. carson. >> it is interesting our presentation of strategies very different from what we usually hear in terms of departments
2:23 am
coming in and talking about their budgets or strategies just based on the lack of service and how much we need to do what kind of services we should provide and so forth this is unusual because your strategy talks about the people that provide the services and as you may know the services would be the people that provide it here in this case can you say a little bit more about from your point of view why this report has so much emphasis on the people that provide the services. >> well, i mean other than kevin about who takes care of of our children in the city a general proposition a lot of research that links qualify to
2:24 am
was this and in addition to that you can see from our fiscal analysis that research aside we're not getting to the point we're passerby providers to provide quality and those we have lots of tools developed over the last 10 or 15 years that measure the cost of quality and make sure we do that analysis careful or carefully but the compensation for staff is tied to research for the past 20 years to quality in terms of the wage gave him as well as elated big gap to get folks who were working with the population of kids we're seeing last week to target it a no brainier. >> part of my objections and you can confirm is that we know
2:25 am
today, the value- we know the education from the teachers is very, very important most of us in the room don't know wasn't valuable 10 or 15 years ago. >> once upon a time, early education was roanoke county upon definitely as 70 years ago that's when i started this and to change the culture of how we think about that has taken several decades and the fact that was predominantly and still predominantly provided by a woman so the salaries you know
2:26 am
as we know when a woman has dominated a fee is a lot less so, i mean are there ways to overcome this at this point in time we started so way behind the fees were way behind and it is hard to move the needle what can we do in san francisco nationally they're looking at san francisco as a model what can we do to bridge that dangerous weapon. >> i mean obviously the need for additional funding we're indicating in the plan we want to look at strategies to get there what we know that san francisco has taken the lead with the fee was this and tied that program to quality performers but the cost of living the sea wamgz is no
2:27 am
longer working to bring people closer to parody it is a band-aid i don't want to say that money is the only answer we have to looking our structuring program but need to program that will get us there in a certain amount of years without that we're never getting to the quality for zero to 5 years old i mean we've done a great job the po a and not providing the resources to the told her providers to get to the basic level of quality it will take a lot of people strategize i know we have a lot of energy in our community to come up with new approaches but need to begin that work. >> thank you very much and
2:28 am
again, i'm sad your this is your last week. >> i've been back and forth supervisor yee and love to come back and it's been a privilege to be if this position thank you very much. >> colleagues do you have any questions. >> yeah. gave her a hand. >> (clapping.) any other questions. >> supervisor tang i want to say thank you for your service and especially in bringing this new office during that incredibly e exceptionally important time i want to thank you pubically. >> and likewise for your service gordon's and thanks again for everything you did. >> okay. i guess there's a bunch of speakers that want to
2:29 am
make public comment at this point so i'll call some names i can are going to be speaking and many of them are part of cca. >> i'll call o e.c. a cracking and co-chair of co-ac a came back (calling names) hoed san francisco unified school district early childcare department and rosy kennedy and
2:30 am
head of the childcare association and from the association line up first and speak and call other people later. >> thank you. good morning supervisors my name is september i've had the honorable and challenge of service as co-chair of the office and i'm here to fully endorse the plan by ms. carlson and want to speak in my role we're a family foundation with the person are the city since the mid to those as ms. carlson early education is comprised of a highly complex program multiple agencies with roles and responsibilities and finally very federal and state
2:31 am
requirements the planning office little early care and education to organize it both is a common system envision for our young system is visual and inspiring work we need to do together who two elements are important for the roll you have and the committee to think about supporting the work going forward the first i'll highlight the no cost proposition i think the efficiency of our system and leveraging is critical the financing reforms that ms. carlson put forward are critical we've mirrored a chaotic and disruptive and dysfunctional education for low income families we can streamline and reorganize the local investments you all steward and make on behalf of the taxpayers to minimize the paperwork and make sure the time and resources are focused on the
2:32 am
workers that is critical i didn't realize the time limits were briefly it is time to do right by the he recalls educators more than a $20,000 different and the pay for a year later a 4 years old teach will be paid $50,000 and next it 55 and not to recognize the brain development or to live in san francisco we look forward to our investment in early education to make sure the educators just pay for this important work with our children. >> thank you. >> good morning supervisors i'm kim yarz i've honor and privilege to work with amazing colleagues especially barbara
2:33 am
i'm the representative for the family childcare providers that an honor and privilege as well as supervisor yee has - mentioned most of early childcare rear view mirrors are women and women of color and f c provider we represent the women ordinary businesses i've been a teacher many years in san francisco and not only when we provide quality work for the teachers we're also mentioning those teachers are often parents in our school system in order to and fro for them to do well, they need to be able to have a living wage it is important we lift all the aspects of early childhood from zero to 5 as we care for the teachers wear
2:34 am
caring for the parents and teachers it's been amazingly encouraged by the work that the occ has done working in collaboration with the childcare centers and fcc we've seen bodies of the picture and work together to move forward thank you very much. >> thank you. >> hi, i'm sandy black man the executive director of children's council and actually, the current chair the children's advisory committee and representative on the advisory committee for the office every early care and education it's been a huge privilege to serve in those roles i want to commends barbara for her outstanding leadership of the office and for creating the vision to develop this plan i want to echo some of the things
2:35 am
that were said barbara was a couple of points one all the research really shows it is qualify care that matters to our vulnerable children give them are these the leg up it tarts at birth i know that to aspires to be leaders and be the trend seters we have a tremendous opportunity in prop c and 2014 a really creating childcare for all children in the city i believe this plan that we barbara presented provides a vision echoing you know some of the things that were said yeah. the city has been making the tremendous investment in early care and education there is more we feed to do in order to address the inqualities of
2:36 am
opportunities for the children 2, 3, 4 city there is definitely a need to restructure the system i also urge us to invest more in this to enable us to get to the vision of quality care and education thank you very much. >> thank you. good morning candice wong occ c pack and our council i wholeheartedly support this plan i think the opportunity for this city to really lay the foundation and around quality for occ i think this is important that our focus area is around how we support the quality in our teachers as a priority i think having this mechanism and taking a system wide approach will be key to laying the underground for the city to
2:37 am
be model for the nation as well as opportunities for us to draw down federal and state resources this is a great plan i think there's more to do and continue to do that work through the various planning tables we have in the city i think that is important that we lay this plan out it will set a solid foundation for our work and moving forward i think there is opportunities for us to also continue to look at as we support quality and preschool we look at the some of the other gaps within the city in terms of infants and toddlers 80 percent of toddlers we need to continue to focus on the work of the area more work to come and look forward to working with the city moving the dial forward for occ. >> thank you. >> good morning supervisors my

2:39 am
attention how fortunate to say a supervisor like supervisor yee who seize the connection between the early which would care and education for the youth children and the economic and quality of life for everyone in the city if not for our supervisors like supervisor yee and all our supervisors and all our support we've had much cared for to the extent stent those who care for children will be in terrible despair i'm ms. kennedy's i'm the director of the childcare in san francisco there are over seven hundred chiropractors teaching the youth children everyday we're particularly pleased to see in the plans ms. carlson present a commitment to
2:40 am
a verifiable approach the incentives 80 percent of the brain occurs in the first 3 years and so this is a time we should pay attention to the families childcare supports this plan it is the result of a thoughtful and deliverability deliberate fact basis and with anticipation from those who worked with the children and families everyday i thank you, very much. >> thank you, ms. kennedy. >> good morning, supervisors and staff my name is sarah i coordinate the san francisco chiropractors provider and appreciate being part of listening to this as a develops with the occ plan and i'm happy to be here to speak to that plan i want to take a moment to appreciate the conversation at the end of ms. carlson's
2:41 am
presentation between supervisor yee and ms. carlson and talk about the supervisors here today of your leadership roll on this very important needed mind shift as supervisor yee used the word care as the way we viewed childcare for many years and now moved beyond that how for this time is in our lives and more children with cared for by people other than their families we need need to recognize that is absolutely crucial you as leaders are in a position to speak to that as as important as pay equality is and resources are they're important because they effect the reality of the system we're building and the ability to do the service we he
2:42 am
had on a realize we're not talking about when we're talking about early education not rocket science but human development we feed to fund it and needed to make it a center of human work in building the city i thank you for the leadership that you will take in forwarding this plan thank you. >> good morning, supervisors. i'm mr. workers' comp with the san francisco representing the executive director who couldn't be here i want to voice our strong support for the plan and the process that went into this plan i think barbara carlson should be commend for bringing the voices and creating a plan that unifies people around a common vision for standing expanding the opportunity and making sure
2:43 am
the quality of the education is high supporting the office of economic workforce development that is really the foundation of that endeavor and also you know expanding the scope of the city's responsibility in serving children age zero to 4 i think there is a lot of work ahead that is represented in the plan and funding will be 90 no small part of the history in san francisco has been very good the people of san francisco and this board have been generous with children you know starting you know as early as the children's fund the public enrichment fund most recently, the prop c the board recently accident around paid family leave is commendable that sets a clear path for what we need to do going forward so i'm optimistically that the
2:44 am
people will come together to fund the important work of this plan thank you. >> other people that want to make public comment on this item line up. >> i'm lisa lee with the development felt quality of the system a component of this plan moving forward in the city we're here to endorse that plan fully it is the first time our community came forward to say let's not use public dollars unless it assures a positive experience for all children it is going to be a big lift for our city to do this because we fund programs to help parents but we need to fund programs to help children and make that list
2:45 am
we ought to offer our childcare a good model so they can be there for every child and make sure our quality rating and improvements make sense we don't coaching and training for teachers jr. and they leave us we start at square one it is a poor investment unless we keep our teachers in the city and finally i'd like to applaud our community for the work it's done we are finally saying that every child deserves the same learning standard we've had like a zillion standards in san francisco we're saying infant to preschool the same expectation of service for our families and their children so we applaud the office in its work and the communities as well thank you. >> thank you, ms. lee.

2:49 am
of those strategies forward we can't just as a lot of times we hear items here about things that happen and how we should not - how we can deal with that as a happens here's an opportunity i always said if we do those types of things we wouldn't have to have the issues that after the fact that till when something happens whether criminal activities or people failing i think what this does is say if we put the resources up front we're going to save a lot of money in the back end so thank you very much for coming out today and i'd like to go ahead and recommend we table this and file this item. >> okay motion

2:52 am
dementia and alzheimer's and effects our security with mental illness and premature institution of homelessness people older or 0 people with disabilities for example, all increasing food security is a positive effort within our city over the past two years and supports our local competent for a strong san francisco and insures a happier and self-sufficient families in the city from the report done by the food security task force we know that one in four san franciscans that's over 2 had side thousand people in the neighborhoods and the communities are at risk of food enshutter or hunger going to sleep without enough to eat for example, or lacking access to affordable food so food and security exists across all
2:53 am
neighborhoods in the city i think the food security task force amazing documentation of district by district and programs and work shows this in every single neighborhood for example, in the responding we're grappling with seniors and people with disabilities that are isolated it can't get enough food and nutrition we're looking at children with families it can't get it as well, it stretches across the districts at the initial hearing in november of 2013 we were presented with data think envelopes of levels of nutrition programs across the city and see high pirate recommendations from the task force i want to thank the tenderloin task force for their amazing work but the recommendations made from 2 1/2
2:54 am
years ago our city can achieve with i think stronger candidates and actions of support for a hunger free deadline by 2020 and in the future we're identifying at the end of the hearing a couple i do not really we introduced a resolution 2013 committing san franciscans will be hunger free we 2020 it is a bold statement like ending traffic deaths that is a human right and we need to do much more and thank you to the grassroots and leaders that are condominium with me and others we also ask for a future analysis on the solution to approve the securities from the task force which are pretty bad at the this hearing today and ask for the board of supervisors to be apprised on the goals for
2:55 am
now until 2020 so today well be provided with the information and giving the board and others an opportunity to ask questions of task force since that time also tireless advocacy from the task force and the whole security task force and many others but we've seen the city have felt over $12 million over the past years advertise not enough for food security efforts efforts and wanted to thank the tenderloin task force members and the securities task force members in the audience i'll name the organizations community outlining campaign our own aging & adult services dos are dcyf. >> e pistol of life foundation are meals on wheels of san francisco project open hand and salvation army and san francisco harris or human services and the

criminal region but this great food not one the reach of many san franciscans for many reasons people can't afford it they may not be able to leave their homes and not have a stable home some people may not are places to get food if they're able to travel and many don't have kitchens with other rent many people can't afford to buy healthy food we're to work together to change that as supervisor mar gave us the backward the board of supervisors set a bold goal in 2013 to some san franciscans inform to be hunger freebie 2020 we with the board have significant funds to approve the

>> go ahead. >> oh, thank you. >> food a basic human need food and security is also difficult to measure we basically look at income as being a proximity for food and security we used blow 200 percent of poverty to show who's at risk of food and security as supervisor mar said this is one enforcement and to give you a context of what that look like living blow 200 percent of poverty for 3 is slight less than $8,000 a year one of the challenges in san francisco to reproduction that eligibility for food program is based on standard national federal measurement of 100 percent poverty weeping we're challenged in san francisco many of the residents are not eligibility
3:01 am
for the programs like food stamps because that he have an income too high and two they maybe not have the proper documentation status that makes them eligible and 3 living on ssi in the statistic we're the only state makes them ineligible for calfresh we have many folks on ssi the next slide shows you look at what the city looks like in terms of who is living below 200 percent of poverty the green shows the contamination all the neighborhoods in san francisco have people living at risk of food and security the next slide shows you the responses to this problem and this is a map of where existing foods pantries are located and
3:02 am
the food pantries are run write the marin food bank the bigger dots is the bigger pantries they're located throughout the city now the next slide is showing you the red dots that where the pantries are in the neighborhoods there's more demands for those food pantries than ability to meet the demands for a moment in san francisco we have a 200 food pantries serving one hundred thousand residents every week. >> as we said food is very linked to health we know that proper nutrition is essential for good health as the top leading causes of death poor nutrition is a risk and it results in mental and physical and emotional health problems
3:03 am
food u.n. security increases the person's risk factor for chronic disease like high blood pressure and obese it overseeing costs are passed on to other city agencies the school district and the private sector especially the health factor as a reminder food security is complex and achieving food security will involve the complex network of the public and private folks the framework for the task force to look at this issue adopted from the world height and the world security and people need resources to purchase food they need food assess and place they can get to get healthy food the food consumption does the person have the ability to cook and the
3:04 am
nutrition this is the collection network that make ups the facts and circumstances that will approve the security again as a reminder of the work we've down together observe the past couple of years the resolution to end hunger in 2013 and the mayor and board of supervisors have valeted additional funding to solve this problem without further ado, we'll give you an update on the victories and what is the next and my colleagues from the human services agency give you and just want on calfresh. >> i'm here to talk about calfresh and this food stamps in terms of getting folks on benefits currently 54 thousand are referring calfresh that means 200 and $27 a month towards food fortunately that
3:05 am
demand is half so a significant goal of the human services agency to have a comprehensive effort to try to get more people on benefits and the strategies to do that one is to meet applicants where rewhere they are in the neighborhoods community-based organizations that are served and reaching them on the telephone so with the help of the resources two years ago we have a established 8 out station throughout the city those are places we staff human services agency eligibility workers and applicants apply for calfresh and do the interview and prosecutes for the benefits we have this for example, at the naeth at the departments of brags and thought chinatown san
3:06 am
francisco general we help calfresh with the marin food bank those are events a number of communities and community-based organizations help with foods eligible candidates and eligible workers to go out and help to process those applications on the spot and this the reason we've embarked on in reach we mean reaching out to families that are all right. open a caseload of other services eligible for calfresh and not getting it for example, anticipated or stemmed about half of the families on medi-cal's are likely eligible for calfresh awhile only a small portion 18 percent are actually getting that with the help of the large network of the cbo coalition the marin with the human services agency over the past year the cbo has submitted
3:07 am
and approved 17 hundred applications generating approximately $8.8 million unanimously this is a graphic giving you a sense the population for the medi-cal i've referenced if you see the large yellow and green this is the medi-cal approximately, one and 25 thousand households ref medi-cal in the city approximately half are, however, only a portion are referring calfresh so the encourage cycle it is orange and pink the caseload the offer laptop it 2 $3,000 and more thousands are likely eligible for calfresh and to try to address that we've hired and vendor that is engaged in an out bound calling to help with the assistance on the phone
3:08 am
so what are our next steps in terms of the finding the applicants we'll continue to expand in reach and outreach one now in reach strategy we'll launch in the fall similar out bound campaign to children for those who have an interest in calfresh and to provide them with phone assistance we hope to open a satellite office in the mission in san francisco currently wisconsin we have a human services agency site where people can drop off calfresh applications and get limit services we hope to make it a more comprehensive location people can get the range of calfresh and hope focus on the staff resources to have quick processes for applications that is done with the help of more
3:09 am
clerical staff next helping them complete a cumbersome application to apply for calfresh you have to complete a form online over and over on paper and conduct an interview of 45 minutes or an hour and submit the documents this can be hard for protecting folks often people that don't have phones and live on the streets and for anyone that didn't have time to wait in the office and stressed out by the steps involved we're proud of at the human services agency over the past two years we deliver the same day service and even more the clients come in from calfresh is seen within 10 minutes two years ago we could be wasting up to 4 hours or the next day service we also with the help of the cbos with the
3:10 am
food bank helped clients reminding them of their requirements to submit and reminding them on interviews they're not just helping them with the initial application but the next steps so here's the new initiate we've hoped to launch something we call on demand interviews i mean right now an applicant applies online they submit their application and we contact them for their interview if they don't answer the phone there is a list that goes back and forth and missed interview is one of the primary reasons people don't get approved we hope this is something that an individual can call and apply for calfresh and get interviewed on the spot by the person that answers the phone we don't currently have the resources to do that and next won our on calfresh the goal to help you
3:11 am
stay on calfresh if your financing eligible the extensive paperwork to keep you on aid we find that 20 percent of the caseload is disconnected and reapplied within the same thirty days because their financing successful we're piloting the automatic interviews by texts and e-mails the missing the intrifs radio the reason they're not getting the support the state is responsible for sending letters to the caseload to talk about the requirements and expectation when they have to do onramp interview and submit paperwork even people about high education levels to understand so the state will help them be more understandable more people understand what we need to do
3:12 am
and tells you their requirements on the next step additional out bound call campaign for people that are disconnected from aid who are still financially eligible we appreciate the help you've given for the support and pleased the support will continue to help family services linda allow. >> amazing work thank you for the recommendations moving forward. >> good morning board of supervisors. >> i'm linda i am the lead nuflt with the aging & adult services i want to share the updates on what we've been able to achieve with the mayor's office and the board of supervisors the program to serve senior
3:13 am
sdpbz here's and status report from the meals on wheels program in the last two years we were able to with the new investments from the board as well as the mayor add 4 $.4 million to meals and senior disabilities we wanted to thank the mayor for adrc this is an increase of 64 percent for this program and 36 from the board of supervisors with that, we were able to increase one .1 millions meals 3 thousand meals a day and currently over 5 thousand a day for seniors we're able it increase our contract services over from 20 to 27 percent every year and important to note that with
3:14 am
this $4.45 million we're able to leverage 50 percent cycling and if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer theming dollars and increase the forehead funding those to those programs in the next few slides i mean, i'll give you a detailed picture of the seniors and senior disabilities this does change and dos is working to improve the data to see what the needs for the delivery meals program this chart it the seniors we're able to serve etch quarter tin or since 2013 because the significant increase in funding for those programs etch quarter we're able to add close 2 to 3 hundred new clients seniors and
3:15 am
because of that we're able to reduce the number of weight time the memoranda wait times is 41 days. >> can i emphasis a point the unmet data in confederate the - the baby boomers turning into seniors rapidly from 2010 to 2050 i believe the senior population is doubling and san francisco alone one hundred thousand important people by 2030 so a huge number and to plan for - what we're doing to increase nutrition and home delivered meals especially protecting seniors is critical i want to emphasize that.
3:16 am
>> yes. it is i want to should you some conservative projections this slide again we've made in road and able to serve low income seniors we do this to reduce the waiting times on the wait list of senior disabilities because of significance we really increased i service by 200 percent and reduced the waste time to 11 days that's critical and thank you very much to the board and the mayor's office for meeting many critical need this is a picture snapshot of what the home delivery meal wait list looks like by supervisor district some of the districts actually all the district are wait list it's not surprising
3:17 am
tenderloin and south of market has the highest wait list even though the services to that is high the age is 76 years old how are we are doing to achieve the hunger for people on the wait list this is a projection the green bar shows you serving over 5 thousand interpretative clients and another 4 thousand plus are in advance we've seen based studies and analysis in order to reduce the service net need if we're serving 25 percent of this this is about 12 hundred 43 people every year that will take $4 million and in four years an additional $16 million added to the program so by 2020 if we have $24 million we meet
3:18 am
the unmet need this is, of course, not including other projected growth and we'll set that coming up in the coming years so - >> this is a snapshot of what the status we'll be able to do with the covered meal program it is severing people that do ambulatory their participate in under activities that help to keep them healthy and engaged besides receiving a nutritious meal we're grateful in the last two years with the mayors and the brvrsdz adam one $.8 million to this program and we were able to add 6 new sites two of them are restaurant the chance to new breakfast and lunch sites we're able to serve close to 19
3:19 am
thousand clients in the meal program this is a map to give you an idea where the different sites are located a to the of 50 throughout the city in all districts and neighborhoods the beggar dots show us those are sites that are serving more seniors? over law with the percentage of low income seniors in each of the districts the darker shaded colors have a hero percentage of the percentage of the city's low income seniors the next map shows you the sites that serves tsenior disabilitie that is one of the newer programs that help to address
3:20 am
more the unmet meetings needs those are the fact for protecting seniors and senior disabilities that have problems walking and going shopping but can prepare food at home in need of supplemental healthy food and we're able to with the add back of $1.42 million from the board of supervisors and the mayor's office serves a total of 28-2 thousand plus trench active clients and deliver over 71 thousand grocery store bags annual and increase the service by 50 percent one of the reasons we're able to do this this program really leverages our funding because many of the ceo's get volunteers also, they if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer them and the food bank takes advantage they

3:26 am
the heart of faefrmz by the way, a tip circulating if it is mondays you want to tdm and know that local voucher programs are an economic effect that means $5 on vouchers reluctance in the dollars ever economic activity as you can see e d sf is healthy eating and extends the food budgets and the program is also received national attention for the vendor network so let's look at continuous for e d sf opportunities we have demonstrated the healthy food voucher program works in san francisco and produced outcomes and continue to have a further impact a high interest
3:27 am
in the program we have an opportunity to build on the networks in cbo partnerships with an infrastructure developed phil the program will be cost effective in terms of the next steps o steps it is a public-private pales in comparison with philanthropic and city funding ongoing public and private is necessary to continue with the program finally our goal to expand citywide we 2020 and support san francisco is goal to be hunger freebie 2020 thank you for your time and consideration i'd like to bring back to the stage paula that will talk about the sro unfortunately karen is not able to make it today. >> the rest of the presentation this part of presentation will be reporting
3:28 am
back on the results of a survey that the task force accident from the sro residents to understand the security status karen lead the project and wishes she could be here i'll represent the project i'd like to thank yorba brown it uc berkley that provided the pro bono assistance the as you may know over 5 hundreds sro residents in san francisco or sro hotels in san francisco with about 19 thousand plus residential unit many are old and share bathrooms and - residents are among the most vulnerable and low income in san francisco and reliant on government income and cash benefits for their health and well-being with the passing of
3:29 am
the hunger free the board asked the task force to come back with straents to improve the status so we surveyed sro residents the majority were single adults and first, we want to first of all, understand the level of food insecurity those residents and understand the reflex which is really another way to see who up formal nutrition and see what the city can do we served nine hundred residents and exceeded this goal 6 hundred and 30 plus residents we used valeted screening tools to assess the insecurity and understand the risk we found that over 80 percent were food insecure and
3:30 am
at risk for high mall nutrition we looked at things like that dos used 43ers of residents take 3 or more prescription drugs arrest over-the-counter drugs almost half have gains or lost 10 pounds and mouth problems that made it difficult to eat this is a various group is in high need for nutrition we thought and wondered the sro residents are using the existing food program the answer is yes as you can see from this slide 85 percent total are using the food safety net one time a week and many are using other kinds of free programs everyday so we concluded the current
3:31 am
safety net is robust not enough to tend ends food insecurity and protect the health we wonder what role the kitchens might play we asked them question and a full set of the responses to all the data will be in our packet you received and available we have a report on the slides that tell that analyze the data we found out that tenants will cook at home with better kitchens i ask you to look at the report we want to know what is the top priority for residents of skoerz e.r. sros and the top priority was additional funds to purchase better food many residents are getting ssi benefits so their
3:32 am
ineligibility in light state of california from the other priorities that are these railroad many other food programs from a full pantry to low income the programs available they rated 50 percent said they were high priority so what we found is really it although the safety net a utility did absent of kitchens is a barrier to food security but lack of financial issues and other barriers are amongst the residents and additional funds is a highly desirable this will not be the only answer many sro residents may not be able to get out and dine all intervention
3:33 am
will play a role the task force recommend that we had figure out the right package of interventions by the collection of intervention in sro building the task force recommends this for two reasons approval we have people living in the snapshot in srouildings and mr. sincroy came over of food their insecure and people with disabilities and people living in extremely poverty and critical health issues and second trying new interventions we can identify gaps in the current safety net and development solutions and connect the social services and understand how improvements can contribute to food security for the next steps the task force recommends setting aside
3:34 am
specific funds to pilot funds in two or three building with the revenue process that gives details by the type of intervention and those eligible and those remedies were informed by 3 public meetings fr stakeholders thank you for your leadership and with that, i'd like to ask you are chair to provide the final recommendations. >> thank you supervisor mar for sponsoring this hearing and supervisors today part of committee supervisor farrell i want to point out one thing before i make the recommends in your packet an update on the out of school meals a fuller report in june we've made progress but
3:35 am
the reports will be up in the next couple of months moving on to recommends as you've heard we've made significant process of security and a hunger free san francisco by 2020 by more to do i'd like to talk about 3 things first budgeted we need to maintain and expand the nutrition program over the next fiscal and reach you are goals you have a detailed budget totally over $13 million we've shown this program works and make that a further dent in the coming year that have we'll be walking and visiting our offices to meet with you to talk about the details and look forward to doing that i'd like to directing your attention to addressing the divorce population need we believe the time is right to
3:36 am
pilot initiative and collaborative solutions to address the needs of this vulnerable population we urge you to consider that and second policy at the local level you've heard today we're doing a better job of intraoral more and more seniors in the meals on wheels but people wait two along it is still 44 days for anyone that is home bounds with little access to food we ask you to mandate a policy for the home delivery service in 2 to 5 days in an emergency sidewalks we urge to promote a food security gene in all city programs to create a population asset that will give us a fuller stent of what the level of food and security in a city however, there are things the state can do not all on the city
3:37 am
i urge to support ab 144 that is making its way introduce the legislation that is ssi for the recipients we noted this population is forced to timely below the poverty level and no access to calfresh and legislation to rectify this and put in place a cost of living investment to people can be sure to have the increases over time finally raven this is a task force that is proud of work we've done to assess the needs of our at risk population in san francisco but in order to reach the goal by 2020 we need to look deeper at the full spectrum of the cost of food and security in san francisco both to residents and you are health care
3:38 am
institutions we need to put a finer point on the cost eliminating food and insecurity as well as identify the opportunities to take advantage of stable and ongoing funding to support those investment like we might find through the hsa and food is a large part and finally developing shared outcomes and measures so we can agree upon what we are looking to achieve and what it looks like to are a secure food place for people that are thriving and engaged with the budget analyst office to exposure those questions and looking forward to extinguisher on that with that, i'd like to close and invite questions. >> start by thanking you and ann and the foot task force in the tenderloin task force as well i had a question how much is
3:39 am
since this is at budget committee how to make the policy to make sure that home delivery meals in the morning that 2 to 5 days what's the range of that. >> well, we've said in the last two years we've focused on this population is that about a million to million half dollars on the wait list by spoke to this earlier every time is clears it comes up we need a finer point to maintain it a blow thirty days ongoing. >> and i think from the presentation on e d sf i realize your healthy it is critical and so continuing the funding to trofrment from selling junk food and cigarettes to inhabitanter beverages and food and
3:40 am
assessable and affordable food it is critical are wanted to say i think the food system approach that paula jones and others talked about is changing the system as the founder of first said 40 years ago and said the system needs to change i'm realizing that education niece to change whether it is more assess but the education about what is healthy and whether for children and families versus seniors and aging people as well so besides the systems change it is culture and other changes from the faefrmz having access to e d sf i want to give a shout out to the food guardians and people on the tenderloin leaders for commissioner tang that culture and raising that awareness for people impacted so we have better
3:41 am
cultural and educational changes so thanks for the great work. >> 20 public comment cards classroom i'll ask people to keep it as short as possible and some need to leave early (calling names) and i'm calling names for people to come forward. >> so professor. >> thank you supervisor mar and thank you especially for all you've done over the years with the task force, with your support of healthy retail and amending the liveable wage
3:42 am
you've been a leader i'm here as you said partly as a health research and a san francisco native and a proud member of the coalition because despite the efforts of task force and all the amazing groups and ceo's and organizations that have worked on that as you have heard food source security a huge problem i'm sorry tammy had to leave another justice levied in the tenderloin they have the best ability to turn the statistics into the face and the people behind them we're aware of the homelessness in the city but we forget i think some of the speakers pointed out when you live in a city that is as expensive as san francisco over 80 percent of people that are
3:43 am
taking advantage of your food banks are working families with low wage they're seniors and, of course, children so hunger is a kind of silent and invisible contributor to talk about the serious health conditions in the city and state and country but misunderstood with two-thirds of the adults overweight or obese oh, they're just leases and eating this stuff because they like is that overeating is not a choice they're eating high calories because of their source of energy in bayview hunters point so one in 4 meals is healthy food. >> professor we're keeping
3:44 am
this to 2 minutes please wrap up. >> i'll move quickly i want to say i totally port all of the recommendations that we've heard this morning i want to add two of them to putting a high priority on healthy retail government contribution through the office of economic workforce development and 60 thousand a year we've been able to bring in grants to support that but they're short lived the one the biggest one is going to be done after 2017. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> next speaker >> good afternoon, supervisors my name is jane and thank you, very much for letting me speak i love san francisco all my life i've down volunteer work and you know the homeless and seniors
3:45 am

3:46 am
so many ways thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> hi supervisors i'm the advocacy coordinator at st. anthony's foundation we serve 24 hundred meals a day one of the many programs and we're proud of our history i want to start any remarks by just mentioning a few things a simple definition not defined in the presentation the diverse between hunger and food security hunger that physical feeling when you don't have enough to eat and food security is a social and economic description of the built to afford and maintain healthy food and healthy eating and you know
3:47 am
hunger can be addressed by the provision of a free meal but food and security is a broader thing that needs to be addresses as economic justice, as well as food justice and so we've heard a lot about how health is related to food security and housing status is related to food security and the ability to be able to prepare food at home that is something that isn't a possibility for the people living in the 19 thousand sros this is a bigger discussion than simply food and a larger discussion of economic justice and basically, the budget apps for the to come to our office on the third in the first place of june and ask for this money for
3:48 am
the programs we know work will be a great achievement in getting economic justice. >> thank you rebecca i'll call more names (calling names) sir. >> thank you hello supervisors my name is ryan a community organizer with tndc and the coordinator of the healthy store coalition we work with a number of folks danny and others couldn't stay to speak but working for 4 years to
