“Taste of Larchmont” festival returns to Larchmont Village on the last Monday in August. Originated in 1993 by the Larchmont Chronicle to celebrate its 30th anniversary, the family-friendly event has grown to include live music, a prize raffle, and of course, plenty of food from 13 different Larchmont establishments on the boulevard. Such a fun evening eating and drinking with neighbors on the boulevard!
Last year, 500 hundred people attended, and $50k was raised for the Hope-Net charitable organization. The Taste of Larchmont festival is the primary fund-raiser for Hope-Net to address hunger and homeless needs, and 90 percent of the funds received are used to purchase and distribute food to those in need in our local area. In 1988, a collaboration of Los Angeles area religious congregations founded Hope-Net to address hunger and homeless needs. First opening in the Wilshire Center area of Los Angeles, the agency’s service area now encompasses Koreatown, Hollywood, Los Feliz, and Silverlake. Hope-Net food pantries and meal programs are a primary source of nourishment, serving the economically poor is Los Angeles. Since it’s inception, Hope Net have served over 3 million persons.
Tickets are $50 each. For more information, visit hopenetla.org.
