This looks like a very good event for a good cause.
Please join me in supporting the Los Angeles Food Policy Council at the Good Food Gala, June 11th, celebrating the first five years of impact in creating a more just and sustainable food system in Southern California. Evan Kleiman, host of KCRW’s Good Food will MC and Raul Campos will DJ, as LA’s finest chefs join host chef Neal Fraser of Redbird to present a locally sourced tasting menu served alongside craft cocktails, beer, and wine at this culinary fundraiser. The kickoff event at Vibiana five years ago, and it was truly spectacular. This year’s gala is sure to be an incredible networking opportunity with food activists and change makers as well as an unforgettable tasting experience.
