RootDown LA is on a mission to help tackle the obesity crisis in South LA. They’re engaging youth at Manual Arts High School to build a ground-up, demand-focused model for creating healthier school food communities.  With youth-driven healthy food messaging, wacky cooking activities, non-traditional nutrition lessons and trips to McGrath Family Farms, we get kids to get kids to eat their veggies.

RSVP by email or phone: rootdownla@gmail.com or 310.422.9226 (or by calling Jennie Cook at 323.982.0052). Jennie will be cooking up a storm so we can share a great meal and our ideas.
