Join us for La Cocina's 6th Annual Fundraising Gala

On the evening of May 21, 2018 at The City View Metreon in San Francisco, we will celebrate the talented entrepreneurs of La Cocina and pay a special tribute to our fellow kitchen incubators operating across cities nationwide, for creating spaces of opportunity and inclusivity in their local communities for food entrepreneurs. 

2018 is an exciting year for La Cocina. Given the national political atmosphere, it is ever more vital that we continue not simply to create and execute on opportunity for low-income, immigrant and women entrepreneurs but also that we herald those successes. At our gala, you will learn more about our recently completed strategic plan alongside three major initiatives La Cocina is already pursuing in the coming months (pssst, a food hall!).
