Taste of the Eastside showcases local restaurants for a good cause

An annual tasting festival in Eastside Los Angeles highlights the culinary stories of local restaurateurs while raising funds to benefit members of the community.

Taste of the Eastside features more than a dozen restaurants in the East Los Angeles community, from Atwater to Silverlake and beyond.

During the event, each company offers special offers and unique meals that can be ordered on the spot, take-out and delivery.

With every meal purchased during the festival, a donation will be made to a charity making a difference in the tight-knit Eastside community.

Organizers say 25% of orders will be donated and split between Silver Lake’s Rose Scharlin Cooperative Nursery School, a nonprofit that helps families with affordable preschool that’s “sustainable and progressive,” as well as Friends Of the LA River, which works to ensure equitable access and fights for the ecological restoration of the LA River.

KTLA’s Megan Telles visited a handful of restaurants across the east participating in the annual food festival which is run entirely by volunteers.

Taste of the Eastside ends on Sunday, April 24. For a complete list of participating restaurants, click here.
