Citrus Stride: farmers, fitness and food banks at the State Capitol

California Agriculture Secretary Karen Ross joined citrus farmers and food bank advocates today at the State Capitol to celebrate the second annual Citrus Stride – a one mile walk around Capitol Park to raise awareness about hunger and celebrate the positive impact that citrus has on the health, economy, and environment of California.

For each participant who registered for Citrus Stride, California Citrus Mutual growers pledged to donate 1,000 pounds of citrus to California food banks.
