Raley’s is excited to sponsor the after-school program at Leataata Floyd Elementary for the second year in a row. The program will provide free cooking and nutrition classes to students, expanding on Food Literacy Center’s mission to inspire kids to eat their vegetables. Continued support will enable Food Literacy Center to serve 90 children weekly for the 2016-2017 school year in the Sacramento City Unified School District.
“We’re heirloom tomato thrilled to partner once again with Raley’s to bring additional food literacy education to Leataata,“ said Amber Stott, Founder and Executive Director of Food Literacy Center. “Food Literacy Center is only able to expand to new schools once funding has been secured from the community because we provide our programs at no cost to the schools. Raley’s commitment to wellness fits our mission perfectly, creating a real win-win for the community.” Sponsorship of the food literacy after school program is part of Raley’s ongoing commitment to supporting healthy food choices.
As a local grocer, Raley’s connects students with fresh and healthy food. Children who participate in the Food Literacy Center have an enriched understanding of fruits and veggies and are more likely to create healthy habits long-term. We believe in the work of the Food Literacy Center and are thrilled to support Leataata Floyd’s after-school program.
