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. Kitchen community and your support will change lives today and into the future!



STRONG FOOD, L.A. Kitchen’s social enterprise purchases imperfect produce that would otherwise be discarded, to manufacture healthy products we then sell. Our latest venture is APPLE & BEET CHIPS. Not only are they crunchy and delicious, they create great paying jobs with full benefits. We now employ nine graduates from Empower L.A. who prepare these along with other healthy snacks and meals. 100% of our net proceeds are reinvested back into L.A. Kitchen’s job training program.

We’re happy to announce Imperfect Produce is an official buyer of Strong Food’s chips. Very soon, when you order a box from Imperfect Produce, you can add on a bag of L..A. Kitchen’s very own chips! Stay tuned for more examples of our super healthy products.

L.A. Kitchen has also secured a 2 year contract with an online start-up working to revolutionize early childhood nutrition by providing access to freshly made, and preservative free food. Strong Food employees cook, package, and ship these delicious meals directly to customers’ homes. The best part – all excess production is incorporated into our Impact L.A. programming which distributes the food to family services and shelters.
