CCF launches Food 4 Thought
A cultural lunch experience with fellow MSMU faculty/staff in the surrounding Doheny neighborhood
Sept. 2010: Mount Faculty and Staff enjoy a delicious meal of a variety of tamales while learning about the incredible community work of Mamas Tamales from Mama – Sandra Romero. Mama's Hot Tamales Café is a job training restaurant designed to train low-and-moderate-income residents from central Los Angeles begin a career path toward success.
“Mama” has received local and national recognition as an expert in helping informal economy workers (street vendors/ home caterers who prepare foods in their kitchens and sell them in make-shift carts on the street) become formal food service employees in food service businesses.
