LA Commons needs your help. Between now and April 17th, we are participating in the Goldhirsh Foundations’ $1,000,000 My LA2050 Challenge. Coinciding with LA Commons mission, LA2050 is rooted in a vision of a successful Los Angeles—a healthy, thriving, and desirable place to live. Ten $100,000 prizes will be awarded and we want Found LA: Festival of Neighborhoods, A Day to Meet and Eat with Neighbors Across Los Angeles to be among those ten. .
Found LA provides a FREE opportunity for people to explore little known parts of the city with locals, like you, as their guides. This year we would like to expand the event to 50 neighborhoods and offer the experience of sharing a locally prepared meal. Food is the great connector, and eating together is an invitation to socialize and build relationships. Seated in a restaurant, a backyard, a community garden or a church banquet hall, people from very different parts of Los Angeles come together and recognize their connection with others and feel more a part of the city.
