Homeboy Industries: From a Life of Crime to Croissants
Father Greg Boyle started Homeboy Industries at a time when his parish had the highest concentration of gangs in the nation. Going against the prevalent "tough on crime" policies of the day, Homeboy Industries brought members of rival gangs and formerly incracerated on the same food production line, equipping them with skills that would get them off the streets and giving them an opportunity to change their lives. Homeboy Industries is now the largest gang intervention, rehab and reentry program in the world.
Roy meets the individuals bringing healthy and affordable food options into South L.A. communities that lack access to fresh food. Roy also visits with vegan grocer Olympia Auset, whose startup Süprmarkt delivers healthy and affordable food to the doorsteps of her community. Finally, Roy visits Earle’s Hot Dogs, a vegetarian hot dog cart that has grown over its 30-year history into a multi-location brick and mortar shop, now a staple of a community hungry for healthier options.
Roy explores future culinary landscapes looking forward to a world affected by climate change. He spends an evening with chefs Henry Fischer and Anna Rose Hopkins from Hank and Bean who make a surprising plant-forward dinner featuring non-traditional protein sources like crickets and jellyfish. Roy also visits with Ethan Brown of Beyond Meat, a company pioneering the plant-based replacements for our favorite burgers and sausages, and Vegan Hooligans, a pop-up restaurant in eastside LA’s Eagle Rock making classic American diner food out of entirely plant-based ingredients.
