September is Food Literacy Month!

September is Food Literacy Month!

It's a big month for my friends over at the Food Literacy Center.  It's Food Literacy Month! That means a lot of activities and money from Farm-to-Fork Restaurant Weeks helping them out. Oh, and they are busy voting for Veggie of the Year too.

September was designated Food Literacy Month in 2012 by Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 161, which in part stated: “Education is needed to inspire change. A broad approach to nutritional education is vital to ensure that California agriculture continues to flourish … When individuals are taught how to cook with fresh fruits and vegetables, they are 85 percent more likely to incorporate fruits and vegetables into their diet … The objective of food literacy awareness month will be to promote food education, inspire food choices that are good for people and good for the planet, encourage parental involvement, and motivate community-wide support.”
