Dozens of local restaurants sign up to fight childhood obesity

Nearly five-dozen Sacramento-area restaurants have come together to help fight childhood obesity this September through California Food Literacy Center’s EatSMART fundraising campaign. The campaign, which takes place during Food Literacy Month, adds a voluntary dollar to every restaurant ticket to help children across the region learn food literacy – understanding the impact of food on our health, community and the environment. “This type of campaign has been wildly successful in cities like London and San Francisco, and we are excited to gather Sacramentans together to ensure our children eat smart,” said Peg Tomlinson-Poswall, chair, California Food Literacy Center.  “I can’t think of another time when this many Sacramento-area restaurants have banded together for a single cause.”
