Eat your spinach
Popeye was a brave soul—swallowing slimy, canned spinach in one gulp to rescue Olive Oyl. His bravery taught kids (and parents) that eating veggies will give you massive biceps and superhuman strength. Yet tasty produce that’s not pumped full of chemicals can be pricey. Urban farm stands are springing up across Sacramento to bring locally grown produce to low-income and underserved communities. Farm stands can be found in Oak Park, Del Paso Heights and Alkali-Mansion Flat through October. Visit www.urbanfarmstand.org for a schedule and locations. Bring it on, Popeye.
