September is Food Literacy Month

September is Food Literacy Month

What is Food Literacy? It’s rooted in the same ideals as the “Farm-to-Fork” movement, but food literacy essentially refers to having an understanding of the impact our food choices make on our health, environment and community. This month, you can finally join the movement and get a real taste of what Food Literacy is all about!

Assembly Select Committee Pursues Revitalizing Established Communities

SACRAMENTO – Wednesday, August 28, Assemblyman Ken Cooley chaired the first hearing of the Assembly Select Committee on Community and Neighborhood Development. The ten member, bi-partisan committee heard from policy and administrative experts who spoke about the impacts of suburban sprawl on our metropolitan areas, and funding needs to help revitalize our aging communities.

“As metropolitan areas grow, it’s important that we do not forget about the needs of our older communities, and help keep them desirable places to live that can attract jobs and private sector investment,” said Cooley. “We moved to our neighborhood because we liked what was there. Now, some of our older areas are faced with quality of life challenges that stand as barriers to community revitalization.”

340 Attend Job Fair Hosted by Assemblyman Ken Cooley, Local Employers

SACRAMENTO - More than 340 area residents attended a job fair hosted by Assemblyman Ken Cooley last Friday.

Joined with companies like Aerojet Rocketdyne, Kaiser Permanente, PG&E, Thunder Valley Casino and Vision Service Plan, attendees were able to hear about hundreds of  job opportunities available across the region and in various industries.

“Our area is still struggling with high unemployment but many opportunities are available,” said Assemblyman Ken Cooley. “My goal for this job fair was to bring those who are hiring and put them in front of those who are unemployed. Really, just bridging a gap between the two.”

Christina Perez, a representative with the California Department of Human Resources, kicked off the event with a presentation on how job seekers can take exams and apply for jobs with the State.

“The first step job seekers need to take is to search and apply for State exams,” said Perez.
