Food Literacy Center Named California Nonprofit of the Year!
We at Food Literacy Center are so honored and grateful to be named one of California’s Nonprofits of the Year. Thank you to Assemblymember McCarty for nominating us for this award.
Food Literacy Center works year-round to inspire kids to eat their veggies by teaching low-income students about cooking and nutrition. Food Literacy Center students learn how to improve their health, the environment and the economy through healthy eating and food literacy.
“I am proud to recognize the Food Literacy Center for their efforts to significantly tackle childhood obesity in the Sacramento region,” – Assemblymember Kevin McCarty
With 40% of Sacramento kids struggling with obesity and only 25% eating the recommended amounts of fruits and veggies, our work is essential to improving the health and welfare of the Sacramento community. We are proud to be recognized for the work that we do and hope that our designation as a California Nonprofit of the Year brings awareness to our mission and our work.
