March 16 - March 16 2017 7:00PM

USC Professor and Author Sarah Portnoy’s book explores the history of Latino cuisine in Los Angeles and the contemporary Latino food scene, one that sharply contrasts with urban Latino neighborhoods where access to affordable, healthy food is a struggle. This book offers solutions such as expanding urban agriculture and legalizing street vendors.
