“In the lecturer “The Saving Grace of Mexican Food” held in MU Turquoise Ballroom, Gustavo Arellano talked about how Mexican food is related to American culture. What left the greatest impression on me was how he illustrated the idea of building a healthier community through food. He utilized the example of Wahagens food. In 1980s, Wahagens were forced to move to the west of Los Angles. Since they were unable to afford the living there, Wahagens started to work in industries. What immigrates usually did to earn a living in a new place was to open a restaurant with their local foods and sometimes it became the only connection between them and hometown. Actually, Wahagen food became successful and popular in the end due to the rich Wahagen bosses in LA. The bosses desired to find people that could serve them the local foods so they hired them. The Wahagen food became so famous that even food critics report on it in the New York Times."- Sarah T.
