Family supper benefit at Good Girl Dinette
On Oct. 3, Good Girl Dinette will host a family supper benefiting the Young Folks Urban Farmers' project at the Los Angeles Leadership Academy's urban farm.
The Young Folks Urban Farmers is a collective of young people looking to change the way urban L.A. eats. The group has partnered with the academy in Lincoln Heights to bring the community a 4-acre farm (currently growing tomatoes, beans, squash, cucumbers, strawberries, melons and peppers) where the collaborative effort of backyard farmers, students, staff, faculty and parents approach sustainability through urban food production.
The Oct. 3 dinner will help fund an Urban Farming elective course offered to high school students at the academy this fall as well as an after-school program. The meal will be completely sourced from local farmers and prepared by Diep Tran, founder and chef of the American-Vietnamese diner, and team.
Tickets are $35 per person and may be purchased online through EventBrite or at Good Girl Dinette.
110 N. Ave. 56, L.A., (323) 257-8980, goodgirlfoods.com.
