About the Social Action Committee:
Kat Alexander and Emily Ventura co-chair the committee. Planned work for 2009 includes expanding access to fresh, sustainable food in the food deserts of Los Angeles by supporting farmer’s markets and gardening. In addition, they will be recruiting “student delegates,” both high school students from underserved areas of Los Angeles who are passionate about social change as well as college students working to improve food choices on their campuses.
