Tanks, Tacos and Twitter: How Food Trucks Feed and Shape Southern California

Allendale Branch Library

1130 S. Marengo Ave., Pasadena, CA 91106


The modern food truck originated in the Los Angeles region as catering trucks that sold snacks and meals to factory workers, and evolved into taco trucks and gourmet trucks that have influenced the food scene locally, nationally, and globally. This lecture shares the history of mobile food in Southern California with a focus on the way that food trucks have shaped eating, working, and living in the Los Angeles region. Mark Vallianatos is an instructor at Occidental College, where he is policy director of the Urban and Environmental Policy Institute. He is co-author of "The Next Los Angeles: The Struggle for a Livable City," and has researched, advocated on, and written about a variety of food issues, including mobile vending, school food, and urban agriculture. The program is presented in conjunction with the Allendale Branch Library’s special collection of culinary books. Light refreshments will be served.

UCLA North Campus, Los Angeles, CA 90095


Join us in the Amphitheater for "exagoge," the first extant Jewish play, written in the style of a Greek tragedy by Ezekiel the Poet in the second century BCE.

Infused with the experiences of later refugees and the disenfranchised, dating from the 17th century to the present, the play highlights the shared struggles of ancient and modern peoples. Note: This is an outdoor performance, so please dress accordingly and bring a blanket for lawn seating.
