Students in the freshman iWorld class from Sacramento New Technology High School stopped by Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) last month to tour our Oak Park campus and learn more about our six programs. Students were led through the Education and Technology Center, where they learned about our Adult Education, Parent Education and Youth Education programs. They were engaged in learning about the technology classes offered in Adult Education and the baby boutique in Parent Education.
Next they headed to the Demonstration Garden to see how SFBFS is teaching people how to eat healthier by demonstrating how to grow and prepare your own produce. The students were really interested in the different plants and the greenhouse.
The last stop on the tour was the Arata Brother’s building, which houses the Food program, Clothing program and Senior program. The students saw a video about SFBFS’ mobile distributions and loved seeing the farmers’ market style in action.
Read some of the comments below from the students who visited:
“Thank you for giving us the opportunity to come and tour your facility…I am really thankful to be in a community that has this resource.” – Kenneth A.
“While touring, I learned that the food given out at the mobile distributions is mostly all local produce. I am appreciative of the stress on the importance of eating healthy.” – Devon C.
“I was very happy to be able to hear and see your educational programs above all else. We all know that education is very important and it was nice to see how you were helping with this.” – Valena A.
“I appreciate how you’re teaching adults nutritional information, so their children will be better nourished with fruits and vegetables.” - Stephanie K.
