Thanks largely to the efforts of El Rodeo Principal Kevin Allen to inspire charity on a daily basis in the lives of the K-8 students he is tasked with educating, giving back is now a daily occurrence in the lives of the school’s youngsters five days a week.

Following a recent legislative change making it possible for schools to donate certain types of packaged foods to food banks, Allen said he launched the “Share Table” in the school’s lunch room. Now, three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, the school donates boxes of food, in addition to milk from the cafeteria that is nearing its expiration date, to the Regional Food Bank in West Hollywood.
