“Holiday Farmers Market” helps kids practice food literacy over holiday break

CDFA Deputy Secretary Jenny Lester Moffitt recently joined CDFA’s Farm to Fork staff at St. Hope Public School 7 in the Sacramento area to help distribute donated produce to students and families in low-income areas.

In partnership with Trinity Fresh, the Food Literacy Center hosted this “Holiday Farmers Market” at three elementary schools in the Sacramento City Unified School District Dec. 19-21.

With the distribution of 7,500 pieces of fresh produce, this program provided students and their families with 5 servings per day for 5 days to satisfy the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables.
