La Cocina, a San Francisco-based non-profit, was founded in 2005 with the belief that a community of talented natural entrepreneurs, given the right resources, can create self-sufficient businesses that benefit themselves, their families, their community, and the whole city. They support businesses by providing an affordable commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance and access to market opportunities. We focus primarily on providing resources to women from communities of color and immigrant communities
We Are La Cocina offers evocative and beautiful lent and their food to pursue economic freedom and over 120 of their recipes for you to taste that success in your home. This book offers home cooks a glimpse into the world of La Cocina, and the world around all of us.
Three volunteers are needed: one for check in, one for photography and one for write-up.
