Wealth derived from the community should be reinvested locally. Investments should be made in both the present and the future. All people have potential, and every person has a role in strengthening the community. You are a vital member of the L.A.

What is Impact L.A.?

Through the Impact L.A. program, L.A. Kitchen ensures that food never goes to waste, and instead is used to nourish our most vulnerable communities. A vibrant workforce of diverse intergenerational volunteers collaborates with Empower students to transform reclaimed local produce into fresh, nutritious, scratch-made meals and snacks donated to social service agencies serving the greater Los Angeles Area, Impact L.A. champions three significant areas of advocacy and engagement: 1) The fight against food waste, 2) proactive engagement through volunteerism, and 3) partnerships with charitable organizations serving L.A.’s most vulnerable populations.

In 2017 we launched an initiative to feed more low income elders a healthy meal. Click HERE to learn more about the Super Seniors Sites initiative powered by Impact L.A.
