Lecture by Sarah Portnoy, associate professor of teaching at the University of Southern California.

Prof. Portnoy 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.

As a result, many residents of low-income Latino neighborhoods suffer from health crises including diabetes, obesity, and food insecurity.

Prof. Portnoy’s talk will offer possible solutions such as expanding urban agriculture, incentivizing corner stores to include more healthy offerings and legalizing sidewalk vendors.
