The First-In Fire Foundation recently partnered with Huntington Meats for PowerBurgers and Diamond Bakery for FireBuns, which were delivered with fresh vegetables to seven Los Angeles Fire Department stations.
The “Firehouse Dinners” program coordinates the delivery of food from merchants at the Original Farmers Market and other sources to local fire stations. Launched this spring, the program started with fire stations in the Miracle Mile and has expanded throughout the city. The most recent deliveries were made to fire stations 37, 43, 58, 61, 71, 83 and 92. Fire Station 58, in the Pico-Robertson area, also houses the LAFD’s Advanced Provider Response Unit serving the Miracle Mile and surrounding communities.
In partnership with homeowner associations, neighborhood councils, residents and small business groups, the program encourages families to prepare for natural disasters and to help meet the needs of first responders. Television City and its owners have supported the program. Nikki Ezhari, district director for Councilman David Ryu, 4th District, and Angel Izard, a field deputy for Councilman Paul Koretz, 5th District, helped coordinate the recent deliveries.
“Emergency preparedness is patriotic,” said Lyn MacEwen Cohen, founder and president of the First-In Fire Foundation. “We are grateful to Councilmember David Ryu, Councilmember Paul Koretz, Television City and private donors who have provided funds for PowerBurger and FireBuns meals.”
“This is exactly the partnership that is needed for success,” added Aram Sahakian, general manager of the Los Angeles Emergency Management Department.
