Food Literacy Month
September 2023

In 2012, Food Literacy Center worked with the California Legislature to pass a resolution declaring September Food Literacy Month — a time to raise statewide awareness about the need for cooking and nutrition education for kids. In 2013, Yolo County, Sacramento County, and City of Sacramento also passed our resolution. In 2015, the State of Washington passed a resolution inspired by the California resolution we championed.
