“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 new center is coming this fall! Floyd Farms at Leataata
Floyd Elementary will be home to a city-run community garden,
Food Literacy Center’s cooking school and headquarters, and
student gardens managed by our program staff.
Our organization is ready to grow and increase programs for the
kids we serve. The cooking school is being 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 is 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 coming to life!
Our cooking school and
headquarters is on track to open in fall 2021. We broke
ground on this one-of-a-kind project in September 2019.
Construction is moving fast on the building. After the building
is complete solar panels will be installed followed by
We are excited for the future Floyd Farm’s cooking school, which
will also serve as Food Literacy Center’s headquarters. We look
forward to providing meaningful programs that invite the Leataata
Floyd community to share this resource. If you have any questions
