The Thomas Fire

When the Thomas Fire ignited in Santa Paula on December 4, Upper Ojai was directly in the path of the driven blaze. The immediate aftermath sparked the community effort that became Upper Ojai Relief. Led by residents Trevor Quirk and Justin Homze, they've raised nearly $100K and contributed directly to those most in need in Upper Ojai. Much remains to be done.

Mobilization by Ventura County's Emergency Management Team helped to immediately facilitate relief shelters across Ventura County. Fresh food contributions arriving at these locations must come from licensed, commercial kitchens. L.A. Kitchen immediately responded and began the daily shuttling of hundreds - and then thousands of fresh meal contributions to Ventura county for what would turn out to be nearly a month. When Jose Andres set up his World Kitchen in Ventura, the majority of fresh foods originated from LA Kitchen.

Both organizations exemplify the spirit of giving that best represents our species. It is an honor to support their work.


The Daily Dose

Daily Dose owner Sarkis Vartanian has opened his heart, space and community to Slow Food Ventura County to help bring this benefit event to life. SFVC is grateful for such amazing support and generosity.
