Goodfood LA Awards

The Los Angeles Food Policy Council is a collective impact initiative working to build a Good Food system for all Los Angeles residents — where food is healthy, affordable, fair and sustainable. Los Angeles celebrated the citizens that crusaded in communities under this mission. Awards were given to individuals and organizations. The Los Angeles City Council scheduled time during city business to address the model citizens; handing out awards. Volunteering my time to cover the day's event for their records and marketing purposes; a great cause to get behind.

Informational booths setup by the various sponsors and participating organizations at LA City Hall.
