L.A. Kitchen partners with regional farmers and produce suppliers to purchase or recover fresh fruits and vegetables, and transforms it into nutritious snacks and meals that strengthen the community. L.A. Kitchen’s job training program prepares unemployed individuals, particularly youth aging out of foster care and older adults exiting the prison system, to build careers in the culinary industry. The meals prepared by staff, students, and an army of volunteers will be distributed to area social service agencies, concentrating on programs that support our aging population.
