The founders of L.A.’s sought-after Alma restaurant developed a popular after-school program that teaches kids about nutrition, from garden to table.

In 2013, we introduced GOOD readers to Ashleigh Parsons, the co-owner of a hip new Los Angeles restaurant who was also in charge of the establishment’s community outreach program. The eatery, Alma, went on to be named Bon Appetit’s best new restaurant that year. The outreach initiative, an after-school and weekend wellness program for Los Angeles public school students, has also been a success.
