Coup Street’s For L.A. by L.A. – The GMO Show

Posted on by Jared in EVENTS, For LA by LA | Leave a comment

After a lot of hard work, another For L.A. by L.A. is in the books. This one was called, The GMO Show, with hopes to raise awareness of GMO foods. We had over 25 vendor booths, organic iherb coupon 2014 food , a juice truck, live screen printing, 5 L.A. DJ’s, and 5 of the dopest artists in L.A. painting live under the Cali sun. Tewsr, Mice of Millions, Thanks, Joe Ded, and ZLA put it down for the cause. At the end of the day we raised $1,000 for the Los Angeles Community Garden Council. This money will be able to help them as they continue to provide the streets and communities of Los Angeles with organic produce grown right here in Los Angeles.

We’d like to send a big shout out to McLogan and everyone that came out to support what we’re doing.  As you can tell, we are a heavily art based clothing brand, that likes to work with local artists and the community. Artists are some of the most passionate and outspoken individuals, with a gift of being able to express their message though different mediums. Our goal is to not only create places of passion and inspiration at these shows, but to provide an element of education and giving back. Whether you realize it or not, we all have something in common, and Coup Street’s goal at these shows is to bridge the gap between us as a community. Hopefully you all learned something about GMO’s that you’ll be able to pass on, and maybe even some of you will change your eating habits. The bottom line is, we all have a right to know what we’re eating. If it weren’t for all of you, we couldn’t have raised $1,000 that we will be donating to the Los Angeles Community Garden Council. One of the best ways to fight against GMO’s is to grow your own food. Not only is it the only true way of knowing exactly what you’re eating, but it’s also way of saying, “We don’t need you!” to all the companies and corporations that support it. Thanks again, and we hope to see you at the next show.

Shout out to Paul Alvarez Jr. for the dope photos. You can see the rest of them on our facebook page.

Coup Street L.A. Mission Adopt A Meal

Last night, Coup Street and some volunteers fed the homeless during our Adopt-A-Meal donation with the money raised at For L.A. by L.A. First and foremost I’d like to thank everyone that volunteered and helped make it a special night. It was my first time doing something like that, and it definitely wont be the last.

Coup Street L.A. Mission Adopt A MealWe made it an extra special night, by teaming up with our boy Josue Zeta Rojas aka Zeta Photography and displayed photographs from his project, “Skid Row Quotes: Portraits of Hope.” The project is a series of black and white portraits of residents of the Skid Row community.  This was the first time anyone had really seen them, and who better to see them, than the community he took them of? A lot of the faces were recognized by some of the people that ate with us last night.

Tommy and his daughter Mia showed up, along with Billie, Jillian, and David. We started prepping in the kitchen and later on we served Sloppy Joes and potato wedges.

We got a chance to talk with a few of the people that work there, hear their stories, and desires to change their lives around. One of the people I was intrigued by was a man named Ivery. He was very down to earth, and had a good understanding of where he’d been, and the path he’s on now. He said he used to be a tap dancer, and that every now and then, they have a talent show at the mission that he participates in. I’d really like to check it out.
