Le Menu for Sunday Supper at the Wiltern

Yesterday, I ran about town getting the produce for The Big Wiltern Supper tomorrow. ( Thank you Whole Foods and Farm Fresh to You) My first stop was Jefferson High, to meet Jonny for the RDLA garden contribution. WOW! It was going OFF!!  This is his  heritage red corn, “it grows taller than the others” he told me; um, YEAH!!  And check out the tomato trellis below the menu.  My favorite repurposed folding chair, ever. Scroll down for the final menu – it’s going to be luscious!

Everybody Eats Well in a Perfect World

Hey you, with your fitbit and your Nikes and your Lululemon and YOU, with your green juice and your pho noodles and your designer tacos, you sure are taking good care of yourself and following all the trends. Good for you.

Well, I got a trend for you. Real food for all the people. Did you know that in some neighborhoods of modest means, Moms need to take 2 busses in order to purchase fresh vegetables for their families? Did you know there are next to no grocery stores in these neighborhoods, that’s why they call them food deserts?

If you care about the future of all the people, and in particular, the youth that shall inherit the earth, you should come to the party. Food is everything.

Everyone has a right to clean, fresh food. We want to raise awareness about RootDownLA, as we build demand, change lives and create a greener future. It’s a lot of work but we’re making it happen. Come hear what Temi  and Jocelyn have to say about it.

Thank you Los Angeles! The support has been overwhelming!  Everyone is coming. I’m especially excited for  SLOLA – Seed Library of Los Angeles (because every event should be a seed swap), Triple Chicken Foot, and so many more – check out the link for the links!

Some of our amazing supporters: Whole Foods Market, Café Gratitude, Gjelina, Kye’s Montana, Mohawk Bend, Pot, Jardesca, Angel City Brewery, Beer Belly, Lagunitas, City of LA Stormwater program, Community Healing Gardens, Eco Products, Farm Fresh To You, Food Forward, Kiss The Ground, LASAN, SLOLA, Yoga Works.

They will all be there sharing information and then, a plant based family style feast from the RootDownLA Gardens, and more.

It’s going to be a great party. Get your ticket now!
