CELEBRATES L.A. KITCHEN
HOSTED BY JULIE LACOUTRE AND CECILY JACKSON-ZAPATA
AND FEATURING L.A. KITCHEN’S FOUNDER ROBERT EGGER
Sunday, September 20, 2015

Los Angeles, CA 90031
This summer L.A. Kitchen opened a brand new 20,000 sq foot commercial kitchen near Downtown, and you are invited to their first tea party!
L.A. Kitchen believes that neither food nor people should ever go to waste.
It is a teaching kitchen that uses reclaimed food to feed low-income senior citizens. By salvaging 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.
This tea will be hands on: we will break down produce and help prepare healthy meals for seniors, hear from L.A. Kitchen's visionary founder, Robert Egger, and enjoy tea and company in their new facility.
Children (12 and up) are welcome to this tea, or feel free to bring a guest who might be interested in L.A. Kitchen’s mission. If you can attend, please bring a small plate of treats (sweet or savory) for the tea, and a small donation ($25 per person is suggested) for the cause.
