Earle’s on Crenshaw has served the Crenshaw community and greater Los Angeles area for over 30 years. Founded by brothers Cary and Duane Earle, these Brooklyn natives have created an institution built on the foundation of family, commitment to quality, and dedication to superior service. With a menu boasting New York inspired classics, Los Angeles culinary trends, and robust vegan offerings, Earle’s on Crenshaw has something for everyone!
In 2020, Earle’s launched Earle’s Cares, as a means to help our most vulnerable communities effected by COVID-19. Our non-profit was started as a result of the pandemic and the need to provide healthy meals to underprivileged families, elderly and the sick, who otherwise would not be able to provide for themselves.
During the COVID-19 global pandemic, the brothers extended their philanthropy arm, preparing and delivering meals to approximately 300 elderly community members three times a week. They also donated meals and PPE to hospitals across the city. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CKNdvfAn71b/
From March- June we partnered with local politicians, the LAPD, and Beyond Meat as part of the Great Plates Delivered program, where we cooked and delivered healthy meals three days a week. Over the course of this program we were able to make and send almost 3,000 meals to private homes and assisted living facilities to ensure our elderly community could have safe access to meals. Volunteers called the elderly in our district weekly to provide welfare checks, confirmed dietary restrictions, and informed them of the meal menu. Many of the meal recipients have been long time supporters of our business. There was no greater pleasure than sharing compassion and light with them during this otherwise dark time.
In addition to our scheduled elderly deliveries, Earle’s Cares decided to share a small token of appreciation for the first responders working tirelessly every day. From July-August we provided over 400 meals to the staff and first responders at Cedar Sinai, Kaiser Hospital, Centinela Hospital, and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. We were also able to donate over 100 N-95 masks to help with hospital PPE shortage.
