Native communities are the forgotten lands of America. It was an honor to serve the Tribes of Southern California for two years. I was tasked with solving the problem of feeding the youth at championships for our sports leagues. The curent protocol was to hire out a fast food truck which provided burgers and fries. Seeing this as problematic, we brainstormed and used trial and error over the course of the next year. The end result was Rez Dogg's Refreshments, a program that gained over $125,000 in support to continue health efforts for SoCal Native youth. I am very grateful for the opportunity.
