Roots of Change Network Summary

California Secretary of Agriculture A.G. Kawamura and Joshua GibbsLast week from Wednesday, October 6 to Friday, October 8 many people unsatisfied with our current food and agriculture system in California met in downtown Los Angeles for the Roots of Change Network Summit (ROCNS). You can see the agenda on the official roots of change website here:

It kicked off with a wonderful reception at Vibiana’s on Main St in Downtown LA. Top chefs and restaurants from around the LA area cooked up a wide variety of delicious small plates for guests attending the $100 ticket event. The chefs as well as many local farmers were there enjoying the reception and socializing with their numerous foodie fans. Alongside the tables of food were various organizations working towards a better food system such as
California Food Policy Advocates
,The Los Angeles Food Bank, and Food & Water Watch. Attendees had the opportunity to speak with these different food system reform advocates to learn what they can personally do to help out. The reception was an evening of delicious entertainment but the real purpose of ROCNS was unveiling the Roots of Change California Healthy Food and Agriculture Platform.

The following highlights Bach events for the month of October.

Gourmet Campfire: DinDin-A-GoGo

"It's like a campfire, but better!", my friend told me about South Bay's DinDin-A-GoGo, a food truck meet and eat on Thursday nights, which just recently moved to Alpine Village in Torrance. Being a food truck newbie (I take my lunch to work!), I didn't know what to expect, but after last night, I was sold!
