Posted by Councilmember Englander on October 28, 2016 at 1:26 PM
This week, I honored Valley Interfaith Council's Director of Operations, Ileene Parker, and Food Forward's "Triple Crown Champion," Karen Mariglia, as Council District 12's Good Food Champions.
Food Day is a national event with over 5,000 activities taking place every year to highlight the need for greater equity, sustainability and resiliency of our food system. Here in LA, Food Day is a time for community members, advocates and all those who provide leadership around our local food system to join with local government officials to celebrate our progress and garner momentum for continued efforts.
The Good Food Champion honorees represent an outstanding individual in the district whose work embraces the spirit of building a Good Food LA. “Good Food” is healthy, affordable, fair and sustainable.
