Raw Food Class With Dave Rayala
Saturday, May 4th
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Culinary Center, $5.00

Born in 1992, Dave began his journey into better health in the seventh grade. Given a Gold’s Gym membership by his parents, he developed a passion for body building. At the age of 14, Dave began getting his own groceries and prepping his own meals for the week.  Being the young kid in the gym, the body builders took him under their wings and from there his mentoring began. By high school, Dave got involved in helping others achieve their fitness goals and did personal training alongside with school. After high school, Dave moved in with his brother in the mountains of Northern California. Only being there for four months, he was introduced to a vegetarian lifestyle. Moving back with his mom, Dave applied what he was taught and few weeks later he became 100% raw vegan. Three years have gone by, and Dave is still eating 100% raw, teaching and inspiring others to eat more fruits and vegetables. Within the past year, Dave was nominated for raw food coach of 2012 and was featured in Super Raw Life magazine (Spring 2013).  Sign up now.
