A Non-Profit Social Enterprise Dedicated to Urban Agriculture Education, Training, and Jobs.
We are a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to urban agriculture education, training, and jobs. We believe urban agriculture education is about growing food, but also planting seeds for a more resilient, brighter, scaleable future. We believe in a resilient, decentralized food system that pays living wages, participates in profit sharing, and creates healthy lifestyles, while delivering the freshest, nutrient dense produce possible.
Neither Food Nor People Should Ever Go To Waste.
1. We reclaim healthy, local food that would otherwise go to waste.
2. We provide culinary job training to unemployed men and women.
3. And we distribute fresh, nutritious meals to fellow Angelenos.

YOU'RE GONNA WANNA EAT YOUR VEGGIES
At RootDown LA, we believe supplying a community with healthy food is not enough to help residents make sustainable dietary changes. Without a genuine demand for that healthy food and a population of people who can reinforce demand over time, our efforts to maintain a supply fall flat.
