5/7 Fireside CharLA featuring Lilly Rocha

Event Info

As part of their COVID-19 emergency response efforts, Governor Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti have taken measures to address the needs of two specific vulnerable populations: seniors and hospitality/restaurant workers. To combat food-insecurities and job loss, Mayor Garcetti launched the Senior Meal Emergency Response Program to provide free, emergency home-delivery meals to seniors while at the same time, employing LA's restaurant industry to prepare, package, label, and transport meals to local seniors. RecentlyLos Angeles County also invested $3 million in the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to connect communities and families with food during the COVID-19 crisis.

An estimated 2 million Los Angeles County residents experience food insecurity on an ongoing basis — more than any county in the nation — and the need will possibly increase due to job losses associated with COVID-19.

On Thursday, May 7th, join United Latinx Fund (ULF) and Latino Coalition of Los Angeles (LCLA) for the next installment of our weekly online Fireside CharLA series to update on how local nonprofits and restaurants are partnering up on innovative solutions to feed those most impacted by COVID-19, particularly communities of color.

Hear from our featured guest, Lilly Rocha, CEO/Executive Director of the Los Angeles Latino Chamber of Commerce. Lilly is also the founder of the Sabor Latino Food Industry Trade Show, the nation’s largest Latin Food Trade Show and is co-founder of the Latino Restaurant Association.

This week's CharLA concludes with a live cooking demonstration hosted by celebrity chef Tati Polo and Dora Herrera, whose family-run Yuca's Restaurants are a local favorite since 1976. Both chef’s will prepare some of their most succulent dishes including Shrimp Aguachile by Chef Dora Herrera and Rustic Guacamole & Crispy Plantain Chips by Chef Tati Polo. Copies of the recipes are provided below so you can cook along!
