Please join us at The Food Bowl, which takes place May 1-31 and brings together LA’s best restaurants, cafes, hotels, bars, markets and the world’s top chefs to celebrate the food and drink scene in Los Angeles. The event helps raise awareness and funds to fight food waste, hunger and food insecurity, and promote sustainability. Here’s how the Santa Monica Farmers Market is partaking in the festivities.
