Over the past two decades, Egger developed DCCK into a $10 million a year, non-profit institution that turns ready to be discarded food into meals for the homeless while offering training for food industry jobs. He is moving back to his hometown, Los Angeles, to start up L.A.Kitchen, an ambitious concept that will rescue California fruits and vegetables that are being discarded because they are too ripe or too ugly for the commercial market. L.A.Kitchen will preserve them for use to feed the hungry while training needy people for jobs.
Tickets are $100 with proceeds going to DCCK and L.A.Kitchen. Buy them here. Doors open at 6 PM, for cocktails and food, with tributes from 7:30-9 PM, followed by music and partying until 10 PM.
