“Guess who loved their Farm to EVERY Fork t-shirts?” asks pastor Warren Barnes rhetorically.
“Most of them wore them to school on Monday!”
The Farm to EVERY Fork Forum is in its 2nd year and culminates from nearly three years of networking in the community and with public health groups concerned about healthy eating and active living. Much of this was done through the Healthy Sacramento Coalition, which Grace Presbyterian Church helped to found. Their good standing in the community meant that speakers were happy to participate in a compelling program.
This year’s FTEF followed the opening of Grace’s CalFresh/EBT weekly booth where folks can purchase fresh produce with their electronic SNAP (Food Stamp) benefits cards — year-around.
“Grace is a small church with a big heart and vibrant outreach, especially involving food justice and population health,” says Rev. Barnes.
Indeed it is!
