The UC Davis Center for Nutrition in Schools (CNS) was recently spotlighted on Wells Fargo’s online journal, “Wells Fargo Stories.” The news article, titled “Transforming Inner-city Youth – Mind, Body, and Food Literacy” showcased the successful partnership between the CNS and Success Through Self (STS) Academy, a nonprofit that provides after-school programs for youth in Pittsburg, California.

Under the direction of Dr. Rachel Scherr, the CNS Director and Assistant Research Scientist in the Nutrition Department at UC Davis, Lyndsey Ruiz, a doctoral student in the Graduate Group in Nutrition Biology at UC Davis, led a team that developed a food literacy curriculum for high school-aged adolescents. The curriculum, piloted at STS Academy, was facilitated by Marcela Radtke, an undergraduate student majoring in Nutrition Science at UC Davis.
