Farmer's Kitchen provides permanent presence for Hollywood Farmer's Market

This morning I helped launch the Farmer's Kitchen, a project of Sustainable Economic Enterprises of Los Angeles (SEE-LA). The new facility located in the Sunset + Vine complex (at the corner of Selma Avenue and Morningside Court) provides new jobs, food-industry job training, and free nutrition and cooking classes. It also provides a more permanent presence for the 18 year-old Hollywood Farmer’s Market (operated by SEE-LA), and supports local farmers by canning and bottling unsold produce.

The Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles (CRA/LA) provided financial support for this program, which also received a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and funding from private donors.
