Downtown’s annual program benefiting restaurants spans to helping families in need

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (August 15, 2023) – Downtown Sacramento Partnership will present the Food Literacy Center a check donation for $11,500 on Wednesday, August 23, at 2 p.m. As an element to the downtown restaurant promotion, Dine Downtown, restaurants collected $1 from every meal sold, which was set to be donated to the Food Literacy Center, a 501C3 whose mission is to inspire kids to eat their vegetables and teach children in low-income elementary schools cooking, nutrition, gardening, and active play to improve health, environment, and economy.
