The new managing chef at LA Mission has turned his back on traditional can donations and is now leaning towards making meals for the unhoused from living foods straight out of the produce section. Embracing his role as a catalyst for change, Chef Supreme Dow has just introduced a whole new vegan menu.
With plant-based donations and chops of creativity, Chef Dow has been combining compassion, health consciousness, and sustainability in every plate he creates. Fruit, Salad, and meats made from mushrooms now take priority as the Chef brings years of vegan culinary good deeds to downtown Los Angeles.
“Food is either medicine or poison” says Dow.
Founded in 1936 by Reverend I.L. Eldridge, the Los Angeles Mission has stood as a pillar of support for the homeless and disadvantaged. Throughout its long history, the Mission has grown to become one of the nation’s largest service providers, addressing the immediate and long-term needs of individuals and families in need. Their unwavering commitment to making a positive impact has allowed them to create lasting change in the lives of countless individuals, providing essential resources, care, support and now, healthier eating habits.
