Mayor Eric Garcetti and The Chew visit Echo Park with L.A. Kitchen

On April 17th, 2016, SBSS hosted Mayor Eric Garcetti and The Chew to showcase L.A. Kitchen and our partnership at the Echo Park Senior Center.

SBSS and L.A. Kitchen have piloted a new lunch program in Echo Park. L.A. Kitchen believes that neither food nor people should ever go to waste. By reclaiming healthy, local food that would otherwise be discarded, training men and women who are unemployed for jobs, and providing healthy meals to fellow citizens, L.A. Kitchen empowers, nourishes, and engages the community.

At the Echo Park Senior Center, L.A. Kitchen provides fresh, nutritionally-dense meals every weekday to low-income older adults. We are proud to partner with L.A. Kitchen and provide our participants with nutritious and delicious meals.
