Delaware North LAX team receives congressional award

Delaware North’s Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) team was recognized by U.S. Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard, who represents California’s 40th District, for its contribution to a recent community event.
The team was presented a Congressional Recognition Award during the 2019 Health & Garden Expo, an annual event designed to educate families and residents of South Central Los Angeles on how to lead healthier lifestyles. The team prepared a nutritious lunch for more than 500 community members, demonstrated how to prepare healthier meals, provided recipes for healthy eating and offered samples of alternative flavor profiles during this year’s expo.
This is the third year the LAX team has assisted the expo and its community partner, A Place Called Home, with the outreach event. Since 2016, Delaware North’s LAX team has been a corporate partner to A Place Called Home – supporting the organization’s yearly charitable endeavors that include a celebrity bowling fundraiser and community Thanksgiving dinner, along with the expo event.
