Volunteers will meet at L.A. Kitchen (260 W. Ave. 26, Los Angeles) to work alongside a team of L.A. Kitchen chefs, kitchen staff, and alumni or students from the Empower Program (a culinary job training program for young men and women aging out of foster care and older men and women transitioning out of incarceration). Volunteers will be preparing reclaimed fruits and vegetables that will be transformed into nutritious meals and snacks for charitable partners that serve Los Angeles’ aging, low income, and homeless populations. No prior kitchen prep experience is necessary.
