Food trucks that participated for the event was A Taste of Soul, The Melt, Sliders, and Sugar Babies. So whether you had a taste for soul food, melted cheese sandwiches, miniature burgers, or cup cakes….you were sure to find something you could sink your teeth into.
Entertainment was provide by the Inglewood High School Jazz Band, drill team, cheerleaders, and later on by KJLH DJ “Big Rock” who I tried to get to speak with me for a moment but he respectfully told me that he was busy providing music to his dancing audience….and I replied to him “I ain’t mad at cha” in a smiling manner.
Many schools have fund raisers which include candy sales, raffles, car washes, and garage sales, just to name a few. But it’s something about food that just attracts people….and in the end we all have to eat sometime during the day anyway.
Inglewood Unified is hoping events like this will help bring the community together. The district was taken over by the state last year (at the request of the district) due to financial issues. Payroll and other obligations were in jeopardy if the move for state takeover didn’t take place. State Superintendent Tom Tarlakson said that Brann was appointed because he believed that his strong leadership would return the district to fiscal solvency.
Brann most recently served as Interim Superintendent of San Gabriel Unified School District, and served for 15 years as a Superintendent in Hawthorne. Brann has over 40 years of educational experience and was recognized as the Region’s Superintendent of The Year by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA).
