Holiday Recipe Collection
Broccoli smiles and food literacy. Amber Stott has lots to smile about these days.
The California Food Literacy Center, a Sacramento based non-profit that she started July 2011 is successfully teaching kids all about food. In a pilot program pre-test, when asked K-1st graders if healthy snacks taste good; 82% of kids said “no.” After 1 month of food literacy training, 92% of the kids said “yes.”
The Center is running an online campaign to help them raise $11,000 by Jan 1. You can read all about it here.
