Students do volunteer work for SPAN 316
In the course of Spanish 316 students did volunteer work in various community and school gardens around the city this semester. In the class, they studied issues of food access and health issues that affect Latino communities of Los Angeles. The students learned about local solutions such as urban gardens , school gardens, and corner stores being converted to provide more healthy selections. The volunteer requirement of the class was a great way for them to interact with local Latino community members, speak Spanish, and make a difference in areas around USC!
