There’s lots happening at LA Kitchen! Check out our different volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved.
Volunteers work with a variety of L.A. Kitchen chefs, kitchen staff, and alumni or students from our Empower Program to create nutritious meals and snacks that are donated to partner agencies that serve Los Angeles’ aging and homeless populations. You may be doing anything from working with our reclaimed fruits and vegetables (clean, peel, zest, cut, etc.) to making dressings or sauces and more! Get involved
The cooking demo or presentation is followed by a Kitchen Prep volunteer service session. Service events on these dates may be enhanced by guest speakers, cultural activities, and a culturally-specific dish or menu that volunteers will help prepare for our nonprofit partners. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn, share and then serve. Find out this month’s theme.
