Kids Holiday Farmers Market hosted by Food Literacy Center
Students Practice Food Literacy Over Winter Break
Sacramento, CA – The Kids Holiday Farmers Market, hosted by Food Literacy Center, will take place on Monday, December 16 at 2:30 p.m. at an elementary school in Sacramento City Unified School District. The Holiday Farmers Market, in partnership with Nugget Markets, Kaiser Permanente, and LIBERTY Dental Plan will offer Food Literacy Center students the chance to take home an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables for the winter break.
This year, the Kids Holiday Farmers Market will focus on winter veggies to mirror the classroom curriculum where food insecure students are making Rainbow Soup made with six veggies. Each student will be sent home with a soup spice packet donated by the Allspicery and can choose all the veggies they would like to make the recipe at home over break with their parents.
Follow along on Instagram or watch our Facebook Live feed on during the event, December 16, at 3:30 p.m. to experience the joy right along with our kids as they shop for their favorite fruits and vegetables.
