LG Helps Kids Eat Healthy

December 07, 2011

Teaming up with chef Roy Choi, LG Electronics USA is providing three full suites of kitchen appliances to RootDown LA, a Project of Community Partners, for its healthy food programming. The program trains high school students to build demand for and increase supplies of fresh produce in their communities.

Los Angeles-based Chef Choi has been a long-time supporter of RootDown LA, assisting in their programming to engage kids to cook and eat more vegetables. "Community is what you make of it, and RootDown LA is supporting the South LA area by helping to reinforce an interest in the strong food culture that already exists in LA and encourage healthy cooking on a daily basis," said Chef Choi. "Today's youth needs resources and programs that let them explore their creativity and express their emotions. LG's donation provides us with tools that will enhance our efforts to share our culinary skills with students for the benefit of our entire community."

The donation by LG of three full kitchen suites includes each of the following, a super-capacity French-door refrigerator, a 30-in. electric induction cooktop and a built-in double wall oven.

"By enhancing RootDown LA's educational program with state-of-the-art kitchens that offer great performance features, LG is helping the local youth to build a healthier community," said Ellis Mass, director of brand communications, home appliances, LG Electronics USA.  "We are happy to provide such a deserving organization with the right tools and equipment to cook up something better in the kitchen."
