On May 31, 2014, the Kapit Bisig Kabataan Network, Filipino Migrant Center, National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON), Anakbayan LA, Bayan-SoCal, & Jarritos all co-sponsored an adobo cook-off in order to raise funds to help support sending missioners to the typhoon-impacted areas this summer. Community members lined up to indulge in many different varieties of adobo. Our judges included “The Talk” producer Marc Anthony Nicolas, Cabrillo High School Sama Sama Youth’s Rhea Garcia, incoming City Councilman Roberto Uranga and video journalist Steve Angeles who awarded the best unique/fusion adobo dish as well as the best traditional adobo dish. The people’s choice award went to ABLA Chair, Romeo Hebron! Thank you to everyone who helped to coordinate, donated, and participated in this great community event. Check out the media coverage here!
