The collective experience of watching a world record broken or your team win a national title fosters a sense of community beyond the act of competition. Similarly the "shared meal" elevates the act of eating from a mechanical process to a ritual of family and community. This thesis proposes a new type of urban agriculture that converts an obsolete sports arena into a community food hub for South Los Angeles. By transforming the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena into an urban food hub, it creates a venue for sharing within a community that is currently disconnected from their food.
