Farm to Chopsticks is a celebration that will bring together APIOPA staff, supporters, and socially-conscious Angelenos who are inspired by culinary innovation and local produce.
This is a night about reconnecting with our roots and eating how our ancestors ate. FTC will feature local chef Jan De-Peralta, who will prepare food sourced from our partner Padao Farms, located in Fresno. We have worked with these Hmong farmers for over 3 years to grow and cultivate the Roots community-supported agriculture program.
All proceeds from Farm to Chopsticks will support APIOPA's efforts to make healthy Asian produce more affordable and accessible for families in Los Angeles County.
Craft beer tastings will be provided by local breweries: Brewjeria Company, Angel City, and Iron Triangle. Must be 21 & over to attend. See you there!
