Food Literacy Month
September is Food Literacy Month in California. To celebrate, we are running a month-long campaign to promote food literacy education through awareness activities such as our Veggie of the Year competition. Become a sponsor of Food Literacy Month to ensure our kids make healthy food choices that last a lifetime.
Sponsor Veggie of the Year
Sponsoring the Veggie of the Year competition is a feel-good way to support our mission to inspire kids to eat their vegetables and support our local farmers! Starting with the September 1 kick-off of Food Literacy Month, ten seasonal vegetables will be in the running. These veggies will be voted on by the public and our food literacy kids. We hold an event at school where a team of local restaurant chefs presents the veggies to students to taste and vote for their favorite. Community members also attend and cheer the students on. The winning vegetable will be featured throughout the year in classroom lessons, and in recipes posted on our website and on social media.
Become a Matching Donor
Let us leverage your donation! Your support of Food Literacy Center reaches Sacramento’s children, while also creating an ever-widening circle of donors for food literacy in the community. During our month-long membership drive, we’ll promote your company across our social platforms. We’ll ask the community to match dollar-for-dollar until we reach our goal.
Your partnership during Food Literacy Month will allow us to continue our mission, and to expand our programming to reach more kids in Sacramento. Together, we are creating healthier kids!
We’ll work with you to create a sponsorship package that fits your needs!
