LA Times video with Lucas: Building community through food in skid row, the epicenter of L.A.'s homelessness crisis | Off Menu

excerpt:

The Los Angeles Community Action Network, located on 6th Street in skid row, operates a rooftop garden and hosts a Thursday marketplace, where local residents can buy produce, get free haircuts and participate in an open mike. Skid Row Coffee, which operates out of the main branch of the Los Angeles Public Library, provides nutritious, affordable food, vocational training and a dignified work environment for those who have struggled with poverty.
