Getting good food for a decent price can be an excellent way to spend time in downtown Sacramento. That meal gets even better when a portion of the meal price goes to social services and food literacy programs in the area.

One of the organizations that benefits from this event is the Food Literacy Center — which works toward getting children to learn to like vegetables and how to be healthy.
