SCG and The Eisner Foundation invite you to an afternoon of service at L.A. Kitchen as we tour this innovative nonprofit's  facility, assist with food preparation alongside their students, and enjoy refreshments showcasing their culinary skills.
L.A. Kitchen believes that neither food nor people should ever go to waste. Founded in 2013 by Robert Egger, it provides young adults aging out of foster care and older adults recently released from prison with culinary job training in a 20,000 square foot kitchen, addressing issues of unemployment, poor health, and food waste.
As volunteers, we'll work alongside L.A. Kitchen chefs, staff, alumni, and students to prepare reclaimed fruits and vegetables that will be transformed into nutritious meals for charitable partners to serve aging, low-income, and homeless populations.
L.A. Kitchen is one of two recipients of the 2015 Eisner Prize, awarded by The Eisner Foundation in recognition of efforts to unite generations to bring about positive, lasting change in their community.

Their innovative approach to serving youth and the previously incarcerated while creatively and efficiently using food resources is a unique example of the inter-generational programming The Eisner Foundation seeks to promote.
