Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Visits Homeboy Industries in LA
Jamie Oliver Sheds Light on LA's Homeboy Industries
Season two of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, set in LA, finally debuted last night. But it hasn't been all fun in the sun for the chef; he's had to deal with some taping drama with the Los Angeles Unified School District. Still, Jamie continues to do his thing. One of those things is working with local charity Homeboy Industries, which uses food to end crime. This season, he visits East LA, specifically the homes of residents Rigo and Maria, and discovers that food is a vital part of family gatherings. You too can get involved, not necessarily by going to East LA, but by volunteering and/or donating to the organization. Or you can attend its upcoming 9th annual Lo Maximo Awards at the J.W. Marriott LA Live (900 W. Olympic Blvd., 213-765-8600) on April 30 for $120 a ticket. Let Jamie's work in LA inspire us all to do — and eat — good.
