The Beverly Hills Farmers’ Market donated fresh cut meats, and fruits and vegetables, last week to more than 150 homeless individuals and families living at People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) shelters in Hollywood and Los Angeles. PATH is a non-profit organization working to end homelessness for individuals, families and communities.
The donation was made in conjunction with the Farmers’ Market’s “Sharing the Bounty” 20th anniversary dinner, held on Sept. 18. Beverly Hills city staff members picked up donations from participating restaurants and ranchers, and delivered it to the local shelters. Participating restaurants included Bouchon, SPAGO, Via Alloro, Il Ceilo and Crustacean.
“The City of Beverly Hills, local chefs and farmers wanted to share the bounty and assist the homeless. Local farmers donated food, restaurants prepared fresh dishes and we honored the 20th anniversary of the Farmers’ Market by providing dinner to local shelters,” Beverly Hills Farmers’ Market manager Greta Dunlap said.
PATH is an integral part of the city’s social services, and provides food and shelter to homeless individuals in Beverly Hills and throughout the Los Angeles area. The Hollywood shelter is located at 5627 Fernwood Ave., while the Los Angeles shelter is located at 340 N Madison Ave.
“These are ingredients I dream about,” PATH’s head chef Miguel Llorente said.
