2 CAMPAIGNS 

1. CAL FRESH 

  • Creative Economy Grant: Create a local brand/logo to promote CalFresh utilization at farmers markets. Create and place highly visible promotional signage.

  • Collaboration with the Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance (DHA) to identify and carry out creative methods for promoting CalFresh utilization at farmers markets through DHA staff and existing communication channels.

  • Create policy, funding and technical assistance solutions that will result in ALL farmers markets in Sacramento County having Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) systems for processing CalFresh payments.  

2. ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE: FOOD JUSTICE 

“Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies,” according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Our built environment has a tremendous impact on our health. There are a number of communities throughout Sacramento County whose health outcomes are disproportionately impacted by the planning decisions that were and are made about the physical development of their communities.
