Take the "High Road" to Eating Out

Restaurant Opportunity Centers United (ROC-United) , a Liberty Hill grantee, jumped into action as soon as it was founded in 2010. It reached out to low-wage restaurant workers and it undertook research into local conditions. Its February 2011 report Behind the Kitchen Door, Inequality and Opportunity in Los Angeles, the Nation's Largest Restaurant Industry caused a stir. Now it's "promoting the high road to profitability" by highlighting 10 "High Road Restaurants" with a profile rolling out each week on the ROC blog.
