Cultivating and Revitalizing Sacramento's Economy

Working alongside Mayor Kevin Johnson, Erika played leadership role in executing the Greenwise Action Plan. Erika brought together key stakeholders throughout Sacramento, including Sac High, Sacramento͛s public schools, and the City of Sacramento, to build a national prototype for healthy food and jobs programs called Edible Sac High. Erika’s efforts led to an integrated food systems curriculum at Sacramento High School that includes a schoolyard garden, student kitchen instruction, and cafeteria management experience.
