Assemblymember Roger Dickinson’s (D-Sacramento) Assembly Concurrent Resolution 161, which establishes every September in California as Food Literacy Awareness Month, was approved by the Senate. The resolution has previously been approved by the Assembly and is now enrolled.
“Educating the public, especially children, about food literacy is important because it has the ability to address the growing obesity epidemic,” said Assemblymember Dickinson.
