Each year, Jefferson High School hosts a day where folks from the entire Jefferson family of schools can come and enjoy great food, entertainment and activities. This year, RootDown LA was on hand to provide fresh local produce and lots of VEGGIES! snuck into our homemade salsa and spicy hummus & sauteed veggie wraps. Our youth leaders, and new recruits to the RootDown Healthy Food Club showed up to volunteer their time to feed the people healthy whole foods. The morning started off a bit slow, with a few guests stopping by for sliced apples and citrus. By noon however, the tables were THRONGED with students and parents who couldn't get enough of the delicious, healthy and AFFORDABLE! food. Thanks to Councilwoman, Jan Perry, for stopping by to say hello! We're supporting her moratorium on fast food restaurants in South LA by building demand for healthy food!
