Roots, Beans and Greens celebrates healthy eating through hip hop tonight

The third annual Roots, Beans and Greens goes down at Crossroads Theater, 2590 Washington Street, from 6 to 9 p.m. this evening. The all-ages, free party will focus on educating kids and their parents about the importance of an organic, local diet. And that mission is especially close to Ietef Vita, a 2013 Westword Mastermind winner who's hosting the party, and debuting a new video there titled "Brown Rice and Broccoli," which features local youths rhyming about eating healthy.

There will be freshly squeezed juice available at no charge (organizers encourage attendees to bring organic produce to contribute), hip-hop yoga, music and more. Check the Facebook page for more information.
