#Shared Plates LA > SUCCESS!

L.A. Kitchen’s first annual “Shared Plates” event was a wonderful success! With 550 guests and hosts, we raised $40,000 for L.A. Kitchen. EVERY dollar of that was matched for a total of $80,000. It’s not too late to help us reach our $100,000 goal. Donate here

I’ll be posting more photos from our Shared Plates dinner soon, but you can read more about the magical evening here.

Cheers! Jo

Taste of the NFL

Do you LOVE food?
ME TOO.

Are you excited The Rams are back in L.A.? Ditto!

There’s an amazing event in October that combines great food, the Rams, AND raises much-needed funds for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Totally MY kind of evening for sure.

What: Taste Of The NFL Dinner with the L.A. Rams! Rams General Manager Les Snead and his wife Kara Henderson will be co-chairing the host committee, and Rams players will be in attendance to sign autographs and mingle with attendees. The evening will include a live and silent auction, signature appetizers from local chefs, specialty cocktails and live entertainment.

When: Wednesday, October 5, 2016 (6-9pm)

Where: Globe Theater, Universal Studios Hollywood

Why: To support the L.A.Food Bank. Did you know that one in seven people in L.A. County experiences food insecurity? The L.A. Food Bank mobilizes resources to fight hunger and provides food to 320,000 people every month. Since 1973, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has distributed more than 1 billion pounds of food and in 2015 they distributed 52 million meals. Learn more about L.A. Food Bank here.

L.A. Kitchen Shared Plates Event


I’m a huge supporter of  L.A. Kitchen, the nonprofit facility that recovers fresh fruit and vegetables used in a culinary arts job-training program for former inmates and young adults leaving the foster care system. #SharedPlates is an upcoming dinner party event that benefits the L.A. Kitchen.

When: Saturday, October 22, 2016 (7-10pm)

What: 100 people will host dinner parties in homes across Los Angeles. By sharing plates, stories, and a few surprises, these dinners will bring Angelenos from every walk of life together to reveal the power of food. Tickets are $75 per person. 100% of ticket sales will go to support L.A. Kitchen’s vital work to ensure that neither food nor people will ever go to waste.

Get involved: (host a dinner, buy tickets and invite friends) at the #SharedPlates website.
