September is Food Literacy Month


What is Food Literacy? It’s rooted in the same ideals as the Farm-to-Fork movement, but food literacy essentially refers to having an understanding of the impact our food choices make on our health, environment and community. This month, you can finally join the movement and get a real taste of what Food Literacy is all about!

For this month and this month only, 55 area restaurants have signed up to participate in this EatSmart: Dine & Donate Campaign to benefit the California Food Literacy Center. The center works to provide youth education programs to teach healthy eating habits and sustainability basics from an early age.

For every ticket purchased, these restaurants will donate a dollar to the cause. We checked out the list and were pleasantly surprised to see not only the variety, but the quality! Check out the list of participating restaurants here. So, if you needed another reason to eat out this week… you’re welcome!

    Many thanks for the shout out and support of our EatSMART program! Our volunteers and board have been busy eating at the many participating restaurants, and it has been a delicious campaign so far. Thank you for joining up for a good cause!

    It’s great to see organizations pushing for this sort of thing. We, as a society, have been almost like zombies, just mindlessly shovel food into our mouths without regard to our health and our environment. Being aware and making just a few smarter, healthier choices can make a big difference.
