“Food literacy education is as important as reading and math.
This project brings critical food education into school day
academic curriculum, a big broccoli step towards improving the
health of our kids!”
-Amber Stott, Founding Executive Director, Food Literacy Center
Our organization is ready to grow and increase programs for the
kids we serve. The cooking school is built and paid for by the
Sacramento City Unified School District, so every new dollar
raised goes towards programs for our kids and community.
This ambitious and first-of-its-kind project was built in
partnership with the Sacramento City Unified School District
(SCUSD), the City of Sacramento, HMC Architects, and The Mill at
Broadway, which neighbors the school campus. We are excited that
it is finally here!
Six years ago, we signed up to lead a project that will transform
a vacant lot near public housing and one of the elementary
schools we serve. The vision: improve the health of children by
transforming the school district to prioritize food literacy
education in our children’s school day alongside math and
reading. Years of collaboration between Food Literacy Center,
SCUSD, and the City of Sacramento has resulted in construction of a 4,500 sq ft cooking school
and student gardens that bring this vision to
We are excited for the future Food Literacy Center’s cooking
school, which also serves as Food Literacy Center’s
headquarters. We look forward to providing meaningful programs
that invite the Leataata Floyd community to share this resource.
