Oak Park CalFresh Sign Mural Unveiling

Oak Park CalFresh Sign Mural Unveiling

Presented by Alchemist Community Development Corporation (CDC) at Oak Park Art Garden

Join your fellow artists, food equity advocates, and community members for a mural unveiling and celebration at the Oak Park Art Garden on 14th and MLK Blvd in Sacramento!

The group will be revealing a bilingual public art piece that bridges art and activism by informing CalFresh/food stamp recipients that they can use their benefits to purchase healthy, local food at farmers’ markets.

This project boosts the Sacramento region’s creative ecosystem, helps ensure that our Farm-to-Fork bounty benefits low-income and Spanish-speaking residents, supports public health, and puts more money in the pockets of local farmers. The South Oak Park CalFresh Sign is a project of the Sacramento Food Policy Council with funding provided by CREATIVE EDGE and Capsity, and in partnership with Alchemist Community Development Corporation, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, Valley Vision, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento, and many others!

The installation is one component of SFPC’s continuing campaign to increase CalFresh/food stamp utilization at Sacramento County farmers markets.
