The Food Literacy Academy
Food Literacy Center


The Food Literacy Academy is designed for volunteers to become food literacy educators (we call them Food Geniuses) in the Sacramento area, with a key focus on South Sacramento, a region targeted by the California Endowment as being of greatest need for nonprofit services to tackle childhood obesity. Many children in our classes live in areas that lack access to fresh produce, and many have never tasted several of the foods we eat in class, including broccoli or plums.
