Summer Meals Tour at Arcade Library


In early 2016, the Sacramento Summer Meals Collaborative was formed to bring together the region’s Summer Food Service Program Sponsors and community advocates to collaborate on ways to increase the involvement of youth in summer programs, raise awareness about summer meals and community feeding/meal sites, develop and implement a region-wide outreach and marketing plan, and provide sites and sponsors with a best practices toolkit including topics ranging from meal ordering to improved summer programming. This is a great way to keep kids on track during the summer months when they may not have access to healthy meals.

This tour will include a general overview of the Summer Meals program and will highlight Spike Week’s California Thursday event at Arcade Library – you will be delighted with a celebration of Californian foods! The California Thursday event will feature:

  • Street tacos – made up of California grown and produced foods
  • Plant-a-seed activity – which gives the kids a chance to plant their own fruits and veggies and learn about how they grow
  • California smoothie station – where kids can make and taste smoothies using ingredients sourced entirely from California

This is your chance to come see how we educate kids on local and sustainable California foods!
