Dine Downtown raises more than $14,200 for Food Literacy Center

Dine Downtown

Every January, Dine Downtown strives to get people out to experience some of Downtown Sacramento’s finest restaurants and increase sales in a slow time of year. This year, Dine Downtown had 28 participating restaurants that offered three-course meals for $31, with $1 from every meal going to Food Literacy Center, a non-profit dedicated to inspiring change in community food education.

Downtown Sacramento restaurants, in collaboration with community diners, raised $14,264 in 10 days. “Food Literacy Center’s kids are the real winners from this year’s Dine Downtown,” said Amber Stott, Founding Executive Director of Food Literacy Center. “With the funds raised, we’ll be able to expand to more schools in the fall. Meanwhile, we’ll be training more Food Literacy Geniuses so we have instructors ready to move into those new schools. We’re filled with cherry blossom cheer!”

Yesterday, local chefs and the Downtown Sacramento Partnership (DSP) presented FLC with a check for the $14,264 donation.
