The Los Angeles Food Policy Council invites you to join us for our first ever fundraiser, the Good Food Gala on Thursday, June 11, 2015 at the spectacular Vibiana

Celebrate the first five years of the Los Angeles Food Policy Council and its collaborative efforts to create a more just and sustainable food system in Southern California.
Early bird tickets are available now until May 11 at 11:59 pm PST.
We are excited to feature Neal Fraser, Chef/Owner of Redbird, Vibiana, BLD and ICDC as host chef of the evening. LA’s finest chefs will join Neal Fraser to bring you an unforgettable locally-sourced tasting menu, paired with signature craft cocktails from mixologist Julian Cox using organic spirits from Green Bar Distillery, and local brews by Three Weavers Brewing and the Strand Brewing Company. Additional chefs & farmers will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
