Kids across the region are invited to create healthy recipes using the Veggie of the Year, the sweet potato, for the California Food Literacy Center’s Kids’ Recipe Contest.

Contestants must be in kindergarten through sixth grade and include a short essay about why the recipe represents food literacy — being smart about your food. Entries will be judged on how well they used the Veggie of the Year, understanding of food literacy, flavor, originality and age appropriateness by age category.

Recipes must be submitted by noon Monday, Sept. 30. To learn more and enter the contest, visit www.californiafoodliteracy.org/2013/09/07/kids-recipe-contest.

One of the contest winners will have his or her recipe included on the menu at Ten22, a Sacramento restaurant at 1022 Second St., on Oct. 22 for the restaurant’s fourth anniversary party, which benefits the California Food Literacy Center. The fundraiser will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 and 100 percent of ticket price will benefit the center.

Food stations will feature seasonal, local fare with a side of food literacy — facts about the produce featured in the dishes. The chosen winner will demonstrate the recipe with Ten22 chef Jay Veregge.

The California Food Literacy Center was established in July 2011 to educate and inspire low-income children to eat healthy food. Students learn fruit and vegetable appreciation, how to read nutrition labels, basic cooking skills and environmental impacts of their food choices.

The nonprofit also runs the Food Literacy Academy, which trains community members as food literacy teachers. To date, the nonprofit has 60 active volunteers and serves 2,400 kids annually.
