September is Building CommYOUnity Month at SAFE Credit Union and the podcast team is celebrating with a nonprofit spotlight! On this episode of the Perfect Cents Podcast, Alex & Brit are joined by Amber Stott from Food Literacy Center, a Sacramento-based nonprofit. The mission of Food Literacy Center is to, "inspire kids to eat their vegetables" by teaching children in low-income elementary schools cooking, nutrition, gardening, and active play to improve our health, environment, and economy. Together, they discuss the amazing work that Food Literacy Center is doing in honor of Food Literacy Month, the positive impacts of enriching the lives of local youth and their families through healthy eating programs, and the uplifting power of community partnerships. There's simply no time like the present to get more involved in your community so tune in today to find out how you can support. Because eating your vegetables... just makes Perfect Cents!
