THE CHARITIES

We have secured the following Los Angeles based charities that support sustainability and regeneration in the community. More about each specific organization is below:

The Hollywood Food Coalition has been redistributing “food waste” to provide a warm, nutritious meal, as well as clothing, backpacks, sleeping bags, and hygiene items, assistance with housing placement and referrals, to those in need. Since 1987 they have served 1.5M daily meals to those in need.

Kiss the Ground is a nonprofit organization that empowers the idea that eaters and farmers have the science and technology to balance the climate and recreate our food system through soil regeneration. Their vision is to foster regeneration throughout communities; Their Farmland program supports transitioning farmers and ranchers with training, mentorship, soil testing, and financial assistance. Their Stewardship Program aims to educate, inspire and empower individuals to become powerful and impactful advocates for the regenerative movement. 

As “eaters”, each of us has a role and can make an impact with just a few new decisions.

LA Compost began in 2013 with the collective efforts of volunteers, friends and family. They compost organics locally while creating shared spaces for people to connect with each other and the natural world – places where people coexist – in churches, schools, gardens, and workplaces, cared for, maintained, and enjoyed by activated community members. 

If you think you are spiritual, composting might just be the new path to nirvana! LA Composting is truly an innovator – so easy it’s disruptive! Find out how it fits into the cycle of life and how you can EASILY start!
