Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson was excited to be working with the Feed Your City Challenge. He mentioned how great it was to have Roddy Ricch and Mustard, who are both from the South L.A. community, help host and be hands on during the food drive. “Roddy Ricch and Mustard, they are both homeboys, they are from the community. They came up in our streets and they know how it is in the neighborhood,” says Dawson. He continues, “Once you put out the fall to give help, or get help, our community shows up.

We make it do what it do.” ... read more »
