Celebrate Food Day on October 24th
October 1st, 2014
Food Literacy Center is celebrating Food Day on October 24th with 3 festive library programs reaching 120 elementary aged kids in Sacramento. We partnered with the Sacramento Public library to inspire more children in the community to eat their veggies.
“Learning about food should be fun. We’ve found that when children help prepare what’s on their plate, they’re more likely to eat it,” said Amber Stott. “By partnering with the Food Day activities across the nation, together, we’re bringing attention to the problem of childhood obesity in a way that’s fun so families will remember the solutions.”

- Galt Public Library at 3:30 pm: Apple science lesson
- Colonial Heights Libray at 3:30 pm: Trick or Treat
