Jeanette Padilla Vega, Founder/CEO/President of the Food Justice Coalition was in studio to promote Sabores Ancestrales: Honoring Hispanic Culinary Roots. This exciting celebration is not only a joyful homage to Hispanic heritage, but also a heartfelt fundraiser dedicated to promoting food security for Utahns experiencing hunger.

She tells us that rising food costs disproportionately affect the Hispanic/Latino community. The Hispanic/Latino is the largest minority population in our state. Supporting local food security efforts is crucial, now more than ever.

Event tickets are $25 online and $40 at the door. September15th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at PublikSpace 975S West Temple Salt Lake City.
