Celebrating Good Food Day L.A.
Posted by Councilmember Englander on October 27, 2017 at 10:34 AM
This week, we celebrated and explored our City's most forward-thinking, visionary ideas on the future of food. I was proud to honor this year's CD12 Good Food Champion: New Horizons Sam's Café.
Sam’s Café, home to the New Horizons culinary program, is a professional kitchen and banquet hall that provides training in preparation and food service in a real-world environment to individuals with special needs and other developmental disabilities.
Their 11,000-square-foot facility is a full professional kitchen, equipped with video and sound capabilities, and is a preferred site for many social events, including our CD12 community events. While the New Horizons culinary program at Sam’s Café teaches young adults to cook and serve a variety of dishes, they are most famous for “Sam’s Cookies” which are shared at special events, sold in stores throughout the San Fernando Valley, and shipped nationwide as corporate gifts.
Sam's Cookies is a New Horizons tradition for any occasion that comes in a variety of flavors with 100% of the proceeds going back to their programs and services. For 63 years, New Horizons has served and empowered special needs adults throughout the San Fernando Valley and CD12 is proud to honor New Horizons Sam’s Café’s innovative culinary program.
Congratulations to New Horizons Sam's Café and all of the 2017 Good Food Champions. Thank you to Los Angeles Food Policy Council and everyone that brought a collective vision of the future of food to life and helped make this year's Food Day LA a success.
