On Sunday, July 19 at the Wiltern Theater, LA Grow will provide a community farm-to-table experience catered by Jennie Cook’s Catering with produce provided by RootDown LA, a South Central based non-profit with a stated goal to to empower high school students to build stronger communities by cooking and growing healthy food, right where they live.
