Holiday Produce Drive
December 11th, 2012

Help Low-Income Kids Eat Healthy on Holiday Break!

Let’s send each child home with 5 servings of fruits/veggies for 5 days!

  • California Food Literacy Center teaches 100 K-5th graders at Capitol Heights Academy in Oak Park.
  • 85% of the students use the free/reduced school lunch program.
  • We provide them with weekly produce and food literacy classes. We teach them to cook healthy recipes and read nutrition labels.
  • Many of these kids’ families lack access to healthy produce. We want our kids to practice the healthy food habits they have learned in class when they return home.

Donate fruits and veggies this Sunday, Dec 16, 9 am to 5 pm, at the Nugget Market in West Sacramento!
