Serving the community during the pandemic: The unexpected occurrence of the global pandemic had quite an impact on our company. As the city of Los Angeles shut down, we were forced to limit our services. And like many other small businesses, we experienced the uncertainty of how our business would survive during that time. Very quickly we shifted our focus to our local community’s needs and partnered with local non-profit organizations to offer meals to residents during our city’s shut down. Collectively, we were able to distribute over 750 organic meals with those organizations. As Los Angeles is now “Re-Opening” we are ready for business as usual–with closer ties and connections to the people we serve, having all had this shared experience.
