Revolution_xpa_cropped (2) 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:

Eagle Rock Brewery: 20% of all Revolution Ale ($5/pint) sold in the taproom will go to victims of the earthquake in Haiti throughout the rest of the month. The brewery is currently considering which charity to contribute to and will post it on its blog as soon as it's  determined. 3056 Roswell Street, Los Angeles, (323) 257-7866.

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.

Sushi Roku, Katana, Boa Steakhouse and Robata Bar: On Tuesday, Jan. 19, the IDG restaurants will be donating 20% of all sales to the American Red Cross, Yéle Haiti and the Clinton Foundation.

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. Cahuenga Blvd., Hollywood, (323) 465-2424.
