Volunteers are needed for a Homeless Count in Culver City from 8:00 p.m. until Midnight on Wednesday, January 30. Homeless counts are mandated every two years by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for all communities that receive federal funds for homelessness programs. Culver City needs volunteers to conduct a count which allows us to more accurately track the changes in homelessness and evaluate the success of local efforts. In addition, this information is used to help advocate, plan for and secure resources to assist people to regain self-sufficiency. Volunteers will work in teams and will receive training in recording the count. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, will meet at the Culver City Senior Center and goodies will be provided. If you want to be involved, please e-mail [email protected] or [email protected] and include your name and telephone number. You can also call the Culver City Dept. of Housing at (310) 253- 5780.
The first meeting of the new year for the Culver City Garden Club will take place this Tuesday, January 8 at 7:00 p.m. Meetings are at Star Education, 10117 Jefferson Blvd. This month’s program is entitled “Hands-on Workshop on Sowing Winter Vegetable Seeds with Eco-Pots”, presented by Emi Carvell, Master Gardener. Attendees are asked to bring scissors; a 2” diameter can, such as 6 oz. tomato paste or Tabasco bottle to make Eco-pots; tray on which to put your Eco-pots (takeout trays, plastic containers when you buy two muffins in the market that you can use top and bottom as a tray); and plastic bags to carry the Eco-pots on the trays home. Visitors are warmly welcome – and there’s always a plant “Show, Tell & Ask” table, plant raffle, and refreshments.

Wow – it should be open soon! That’s LYFE (Love Your Food Every Day) whose remodeling has been shielded from curious eyes by tall temporary white walls abutting City Tavern for months now. Healthy foods? 600-calorie, tasty meals? ? Led by CEO Mike Roberts, who’s the former president and COO of McDonald’s??? Roberts joins Mike Donahue, partner and chief communications officer at LYFE, who agrees that the concept is something that’s been a long time coming. The executive chef just happens to be Art Smith, whose resume includes a stint as personal chef to Oprah Winfrey, author of multiple cookbooks, and star of “Iron Chef America” and “Top Chef Masters.” We can’t wait!
