It’s Crab Feed Season in Sacramento!

By Lisa Page

In case your holiday tradition tragically does not include crab (like mine), no need to worry. There’s a slew of crab feeds in the Sacramento area over the next month or so, which is your chance to eat endless amounts of fresh Dungeness crab. You shouldn’t have to look too far to find a crab feed near you. The Delta Elementary Charter School in Clarksburg is having one on January 31, and the Junior League is holding one on Feb. 20, just to name a few. The bottom of this post includes a more complete list of upcoming crab feeds in the Sacramento area... Read More

I'm glad I ate there before I had read his review... Read More

$1 Million Grant Will Help South Sacramento Tackle Obesity

$1 Million Grant Will Help South Sacramento Tackle Obesity

Kaiser Permanente has given a $1 million dollar grant to the Health Education Council to continue its healthy eating and active living work in South Sacramento as it works with an alliance of community groups focused on improving community health.

The grant is part of Kaiser Permanente's new two-year, $4 million Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) investments across Northern California that focus on addressing chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension that are related to obesity.

According to Jennifer Slovis, M.D., a Kaiser Permanente physician and a regional spokesperson for HEAL, these diseases are more prevalent in underserved communities, and providing people access to healthy foods and opportunities for exercise are not enough to turn the trends around.

Asian snack food chains Quickly and Lollicup have been spreading, so it's easy to imagine that more of these Asian snack trends will as well. ... Read More
