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!

 

DONATE TODAY

Volunteers work alongside L.A. Kitchen chefs, kitchen staff, and alumni or students from our Empower Program to transform donated produce from local farmers and wholesale companies into wholesome healthy meals. The meals are distributed to our charitable partners that serve Los Angeles’ aging, low­ income, and homeless populations.

Activities might include cleaning, cutting, peeling, zesting and packaging meals. Volunteers learn and practice valuable knife skills and kitchen safety protocols under the direction of trained L.A. Kitchen culinary team members. No prior kitchen prep experience is necessary.

Service days are offered Monday through Saturday.
Weekday service times: 9:00am-12:00pm &  1:00-4:00pm
Saturday service times: 9:30am-12:30pm 

Please wear a shirt with sleeves, pants, and close toe shoes. Volunteers can bring their own hat or apron, otherwise we will provide one for you.

Bring your family, friends and colleagues together at LA Kitchen with our group Kitchen Prep sessions. If you are interested in volunteering with a group please fill out a Group Volunteer Request Form.

If you can no longer attend, please let us know as soon as possible so we may offer your spot to other individuals/groups on the waiting list. Please email your cancellation at engagela@lakitchen.orgFind a date that works for you and register to join. For any further questions refer to our F.A.Qs
