More Than 2,000 People Attend The Hundreds Family Style Food Festival
More than 2,000 people went to the event, according to Miles Canares, the event’s co-founder. Family Style Food Festival mixed streetwear and street-style food such as Tacos 1986 Tijuana style tacos, Howlin Ray’s hot chicken, Jon & Vinny’s pizza and Badmaash South Asian curry. Merchandised in the event’s gift shop were Los Angeles-based clothing brands and streetwear brands such as Bricks & Wood, The Chinatown Market and Hedley & Bennett, which considers itself a culinary-lifestyle brand. The event was presented by DoorDash technology-enabled food-delivery company. Family Style Food Festival will most likely be an annual event, Canares said.
So, how did The Hundreds follow-up with the Family Style Food Festival? By releasing a shirt-and-hoodie collaboration with Homeboy Industries. Los Angeles-based Homeboy trains former gang members for jobs in fields such as food service. Homeboy Industries also runs a café near Los Angeles’ Chinatown section.
