2017 — ARCADIA FARMS, KIDS IN THE SPOTLIGHT, AND THE ROBERT DUVALL CHILDREN’S FUND.
The Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture, also known as Arcadia Farms, was established in 2010 to improve the health of our community, support the viability of local farmers, and preserve the environment for future generations. Through its programs, Arcadia works to address issues of food access and food justice, raise awareness about healthy food and its sources, and establish innovative connections between local, sustainable farms and consumers.
Kids in the Spotlight, Inc. (KITS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in May 2009. Our program trains youth in foster care programs and other underserved youth to create, write, cast and star in their own short films. This training culminates in an annual film festival competition where we present “Movies by Kids, for Kids”. Kid in the Spotlight allow kids to express themselves through the art of filmmaking and encourages interest in careers in the movie industry, which is so prevalent in Los Angeles.
The Robert Duvall Children’s Fund (RDCF) is a northern-Virginia based nonprofit organization committed to provide for the welfare, health, education and relief of children and their families who are poor, distressed or underprivileged. This is accomplished by promoting and supporting activities of charitable organizations that provide medical assistance, promote education, instruction and development, or provide assistance in meeting requirements relating to food, clothing and other basic needs for children and their families around the world.
