Help to eliminate food deserts in Solano County

A significant number of our neighbors live without ready access to fresh, healthy affordable food, putting them at risk for chronic health problems, including diabetes and obesity. Many individuals across the country are engaged in efforts to address this important issue. We are joining forces with them - and you can be a part of it!

THE EVENT WILL FEATURE:

FREE FOOD
HEALTHY COOKING DEMOS
POLICY MAKERS BREAKFAST
HEALTH SCREENINGS
WIC AND CALFRESH SIGNUPS
and MORE!


Will you be using public transportation?

Vallejo, Benicia, Fairfield, and Suisun residents can use your event ticket for a free bus pass to and from Food Oasis thanks to SolTrans & FAST

What is a food desert?

The USDA defines food deserts as parts of the country without easy access to fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers.
