See video

Western Growers Foundation, along with the Public Health Institute and the Latino Coalition for a Healthy California, is sponsoring a public viewing of the new documentary "Nourishing the Kids of Katrina" on February 8th at the Crest Theatre in Downtown Sacramento.

This compelling 31 minute documentary film follows the story of how renowned chef Alice Waters′ Berkeley "Edible Schoolyard" program is replicated and contributes to the rebirth of the New Orleans Green Charter School after its devastation from Hurricane Katrina floodwaters.

Western Grower Foundation Administrator Briana Lewis is scheduled to speak before the viewing and plans to share the foundation’s efforts to see a school garden erected in every Arizona and California school.
