Here's a sneak peek at what's coming in this week's Food section:

At Figueroa Street Elementary in South Los Angeles the campaign kicked off last week with a program that included U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Food Network celebrity Guy Fieri, former L.A. Laker A.C. Green and Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges, above, as well as nonprofit and community leaders.
