CCI'S FALL WORKSHOP SERIES

"They Don't Want Us to Eat Breakfast"

with Jocelyn Ramirez

Every plate of food is an expression of cultural identity, accessibility, and livelihood. Explore the issues of food desserts in Los Angeles, health impacts related to food accessibility in low income neighborhoods, and concepts in decolonizing food ways. We'll discuss why "they" don't want us to eat breakfast, and create a visual representation of what changes we need in our food system. 

Culinary artist Jocelyn Ramirez is a vegan cook, yoga instructor, and advocate for healthy food access in her community. After Jocelyn’s father was diagnosed with cancer for the second time, she created a plant based superfood smoothie diet that made him dramatically stronger and helped with a quick recovery. In this process, she noticed the disproportion of healthy food options in the LA area after years of driving across town in search of healthier food for her and her family. This inspired Jocelyn to create a healthy food option for the Eastside community. She founded Todo Verde in 2015 with a mission to create delicious and healthy plant-based food options inspired by familiar flavors using Mexican and South American ingredients. Todo Verde's menu includes local, fresh, and organically grown ingredients from local small businesses, farmers, and a mission based food purchasing cooperative.
