Celebrating the nutritious benefits of California agriculture at Ag Day 2022

Thanks to everybody who joined in California’s annual celebration of agriculture on the west steps of the State Capitol at Ag Day 2022 yesterday. Inspection Services Division participation included our Office of Farm to Fork hosting a booth (top and middle left) where visitors could spin a wheel and say what they liked best about which fruit the pointer ended upon to earn a prize, as well as learn more about the California Farm to School Program, its soon-to-be-released Farm to School Incubator Grant Program request for proposals and other related grant opportunities to help all Californians benefit from nutritious, California-grown produce. In fact, the West Sacramento Urban Farm Mobile Farmers Market also at Ag Day (bottom left) was partly funded through the CDFA Healthy Refrigeration Grant Program, which also is preparing to accept grant applications this year. Also attending Ag Day to celebrate the bounty of California’s agricultural community with the farmers, ranchers and agricultural enthusiasts in attendance were Inspection Services Director Natalie Krout-Greenberg and Assistant Director Carla Bocanegra-Sanchez (R-L, right).
