Many holiday food drives collect nonperishable canned goods. But the California Food Literacy Center will try something fresh a produce drive for low-income children.
From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, patrons can contribute fresh fruit and vegetables at the center's stand outside the Nugget Market, 2000 Town Center Plaza, West Sacramento.
Participants can buy produce at Nugget to contribute or bring fresh fruit and vegetables from other sources.
The goal is 2,500 pieces enough to provide five fruits or vegetables a day for five days for every child in the after-school program at Capitol Heights Academy in Oak Park.
For more information or to make a monetary donation, contact Amber Stott, executive director of the California Food Literacy Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (916) 873-2025.
