LA foodies and people who want to make a difference:
The city’s food and cocktail
Why does this matter? In the past few days, we’ve been contacted by other cities and states (NY, Boston, CT) to recreate this model in their locales. For now, this is one city—but the building blocks of this case study can quickly grow into a national movement.
LA Loves Puerto Rico is a glimpse into the soul of the Los Angeles food and cocktail community – and the heart of America’s culinary industry at large – from talented chefs and creative bartenders to dynamic publicists and brilliant journalists, all banding together with a common ethos: Make it easy, geographically and economically, for everyday Americans – many of whom have been unsure of how to take action, or are donating to a cause for the first time – to contribute in some small way, regardless of busy schedule or wallet size.
Thank you for tuning in, and we will send a final update later this week before our kickoff thisSaturday, October 7. .
DATE: Saturday, October 7 – Saturday, October 14, 2017

LA Loves Puerto Rico.
Hurricanes Irma and María have devastated the island of Puerto Rico, leaving millions without water, many without shelter, and an entire population without access to power. The unimaginable has happened.
Many of us in the hospitality industry have sought inspiration and solace in Puerto Rico’s jeweled beaches, emerald rainforests, and warm people. Chefs, bartenders, bakers, restaurateurs are standing together to serve up a small offering of food and drink – inspired by the island – as tribute to this important sisterland that we will not leave behind.
Unidos Por Puerto Rico / United for Puerto Rico is an initiative brought forth by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló, in collaboration with the private sector, with the purpose of providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of the hurricanes.
