We were so excited to partner with the L.A. Kitchen and teach a fun session for some of their Empower L.A (Class 10) students. Their mission that "neither food nor people should ever go to waste" resonated so well with us. To get the opportunity to help inspire independence was so humbling.
If you didn't know, Empower L.A. is a 14 week training program that provides hands on culinary training and self empowerment for foster youth and older adults transitioning out of incarceration. They aim to help teach useful and professional skills and provide opportunities for employment within the food industry.

Chef Pace had such a blast getting to share her knowledge on food with these students who were so eager to learn. She said, "I love being a part of anything that empowers other people to be productive. I know I feel better when I'm more productive. If I can make anyone feel better, than I know I've done my part for the day"
