About the Central Kitchen
The Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) launched its Central Kitchen Project, where food is prepared locally and sent to schools. The project is being funded by Measure R which voters passed in 2012, to allow the district to improve the health and safety of children. Learn more at thecentralkitchen.org.
