On April 6, California Citrus Mutual is hosting the first ever “Citrus Stride” – a one-mile walk around the State Capitol in support of food banks across the state.  For every person who registers, 1,000 pounds of citrus will be donated to the Farm to Family program for distribution to food banks and food pantries around the state.

Citrus Stride is part of CCM’s ongoing campaign, Citrus Strong, which seeks to educate elected officials and policy makers about the benefits provided to the environment, economy, and people by California’s citrus growers.  This unique event offers a fun opportunity for legislators to meet citrus growers and their families while supporting communities in need. Participants will enjoy music, a photo booth, free swag, and a “citrus farmer’s market.”

We need your help to make this event memorable! Join us at the Capitol on April 6 at 12:00 Noon and show Sacramento what the California citrus industry is all about.  Kids are welcome too!
