Rick Mahan

Food Literacy Center is extremely fortunate to have the ardent support of one of Sacramento’s premier chefs, Rick Mahan, chef/owner of restaurants OneSpeed and The Waterboy. Over the years, Rick and his chefs have participated in many Food Literacy Center events, including this year’s Broccoli HQ Night during the Sacramento Food Film Festival, and his restaurants were one of our first donate to help us expand our program to more schools. Food Literacy Center is peach proud to present an invisible cape to our latest superhero Rick Mahan!
