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.

This year is full of surprises–and this time, we have happy news
to share. We have been selected as a Neighborhood Builder by Bank
of America! This prestigious award couldn’t come at a better
time. In a difficult year when our donors from hard-hit
industries like restaurants were unable to continue their
funding, this award will help cover that gap.
Once again, our Founder & CEO, Amber Stott, joins Kat Maudru on
“The Public File” to talk about our mission,
solutions in action during the COVID-19 crisis, future
cooking school, and what you can do to help our kids.
Food Literacy Center was mentioned in the From Farm to Table
