Help for Haiti: A growing list of local restaurants and food trucks chip in
This week we've posted TiGeorges' benefit dinner, chef Ludovic Lefebvre's work at the Hollywood Helping Haiti event and the Gourmandise baking classes to help with the relief effort in Haiti. Here are a few others on the local food scene that are helping us eat well and do good:
ILoveFoodTrucks: The L.A. food truck community is mobilizing through social networking. Since fans are of the techno-savvy nature, the community has created a Facebook Causes page, where it's soliciting donations to Oxfam.
The Edison: From Wednesday, Jan. 20, through Saturday, Jan. 23, there will be a $10-per-person suggested donation at the door, which will be donated to the Doctors Without Borders Haiti Relief Fund. The Edison will also be hosting an auction Friday, Jan. 22 from 5 to 7 p.m. of celebrity memorabilia for the organization. 108 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, (213) 613-0000.Kitchen 24: On Monday, Jan. 18, Kitchen 24 will be donating 10% of its sales to Doctors Without Borders, from 5 p.m. to midnight. 1608 N.
