There are three “Park and Walk” garages in the vicinity which is the best option for you to save your money on the parking and spend it all on the Eat My Blog baked goods instead ;)  The first 90 minutes are free; $2 thereafter, and $6 daily max. The closest P&W garage to Coolhaus is located at 33 E. Green street (entrances can be found at S. Fair Oaks Ave., Green St., and S. Raymond Ave) and of course there are metered parking everywhere. Please visit the Old Pasadena website for more information about parking.

Los Angeles Regional Food Bank tour for EMBers

February 5, 2012

Early in January, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank invited Eat My Blog bakers for a mini tour of their offices and warehouse. Marie Carpenter, the Community Relations Manager, was fantastically informative and hospitable to us as we toured their facilities and learned about the L.A. Regional Food Bank’s role in fighting hunger in L.A. You can also learn about this charitable organization by clicking here.

We toured a very large, refrigerated warehouse which housed all donated food that were yet to be sorted and distributed. It was amazing to learn that all this food was still not enough to service all the needy and hungry in Los Angeles County because “demand for food assistance outstrips supply” so the food bank can always use our help!

We also saw a lot of volunteers, young and old, sorting, repackaging, and inspecting donated food items at the warehouse.  It was a heartwarming sight to see so many volunteers ready to help on a Saturday. If you want more information about volunteer opportunities, click here.

Thank you Marie for your hospitality! And thank you Eat My Blog bakers for joining us on our tour of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank facilities.

Eat My Blog bakers!

Please stay tune for volunteer opportunities organized by the Eat My Blog Committee. And once again, THANK YOU for all your support!
