Event Details

Robert Eggers Event

The Long Beach food community and its allies are invited to have a brilliant backyard dinner with guest and speaker, Robert Egger, of L.A. Kitchen.

L.A. Kitchen believes "neither food nor people should ever go to waste,"  an ethos enlivened by their 20,000 sq. ft facility in L.A. where they will be "reclaiming healthy, local food that would otherwise go to waste and use it to empower, nourish and engage the community."

Robert Egger, President & Founder, pioneered L.A. Kitchen during his 24-year tenure as the President of the DC Central Kitchen, the country's first "community kitchen."

On Septermber 13th, the local food movement is invited to attend a farm-to-table dinner presented by beachgreens, Long Beach Fresh and [POSSIBLY: Homemade Neighborhood: a grassroots Long Beach project that gives Long Beach yout the opportunity to learn to create and serve culinary masterpieces that also build their resume and hirability.]

 - Dinner will include farm-fresh, organically grown food  and will be awesome.

 - Please Register in advance, seating is limited!

- $10 donation per person includes // If price makes this event prohibitive for you, let us know

- Event is outdoors in a real live Long Beach backyard (so no high heels and bring a coat in case it gets cold)

Our Mission

To increase the production, distribution and consumption of healthy, local foods in Long Beach, California
 
Background

Food in America is broken: Inequalities in food access and overconsumption of processed foods, chemicals and GMOs are affecting public health and the environment in disastrous ways.

Communities are organizing to fix the gap: Local farms, chefs and activists are educating citizens and establishing sustainable, local food growth and distribution. Urban agriculture is becoming an increasingly viable source of fresh affordable foods.

We believe in helping all three parts of a local food economy work together: Eaters (consumers), Feeders (establishments ranging from schools and hospitals to restaurants, distributors and co-operatives) and Seeders (local farms and growers). Eaters, Feeders and Seeders comprise the agricultural cycle of supply, distribution, and demand. If Eaters, Feeders and Seeders can become more connected, both supply and demand for local food production will scale up and become a change agent in public health and the local economy.
