The Los Angeles Food Policy Council invites you to join us for our biannual fundraiser the Good Food Gala on Thursday, June 20, 2019, at the spectacular Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles.

Join us for this celebration of Southern California's bounty with craft cocktails and tastings by the region's finest chefs and farmers, as DJ Raul Campos of KCRW spins soulful, fresh sounds into the summer night and Eddie Zamora, Founder of The Yum Yum Foodie and TV host of Dinner Takes All, wows as Master of Ceremonies.

Together, we will recognize this year's Good Food Heroes for their outstanding contributions to the Good Food movement. Honorees will be announced in early Spring 2019.

All proceeds benefit the Los Angeles Food Policy Council, and support our mission to ensure food is healthy, affordable, sustainable and fair for all Angelenos.
