About the Alameda Kitchen: Using fresh fruits and vegetables that would otherwise be discarded from farms and distributors due to imperfections, the Alameda Kitchen will create nutritious food products that can be sold to local food businesses and provided at low cost to food insecure communities. The Alameda Kitchen will be housed at Alameda Point Collaborative (APC), a housing community in the city of Alameda for 500 formerly homeless individuals. In the kitchen, we will train, educate, engage, and employ APC residents, the majority of whom are unemployed and living below the poverty line.
After a year of planning, fundraising, and hiring, it’s time to celebrate the launch of the Alameda Kitchen! We’re having a party, and we’d love for you to attend this special gathering where we’ll celebrate with some of our biggest supporters, advisors, partners, our growing team, and special guest Robert Egger!
We hope you’ll join us to taste food made by our newest team member – Chef Harold – and get a first look at the kitchen! Check out ticket details below and please feel free to share with anyone who you think might be interested in learning more about our kitchen that will reduce waste, create nutritious food, and provide jobs for the formerly homeless!
Date: June 24th
Location: Alameda Point Collaborative, 677 West Ranger Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
Tickets: $100 per person
The Launch Party will include:
- Abundant tastings prepared by Alameda Kitchen Chef Harold, made from cosmetically imperfect food.
- Free beverages from Alameda-based Rock Wall Winery and Faction Brewing.
- A silent auction with many prizes donated from local establishments, including cooking classes, baseball tickets, tennis club memberships, and restaurant gift certificates.
- Guest speaker: Robert Egger* (DC Central Kitchen and LA Kitchen).
