planned parenthood food fare

The Blue Plate Family was honored at the 37th annual PPLA Food Fare in March with owner, Jenny Rush named Restaurateur of the Year! We were thrilled to join over 150 of LA's best restaurants, wineries, breweries and libation purveyors to benefit Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. From its prestigious beginnings as a cooking demonstration with Julia Child in 1979, Food Fare has become one of the most recognized culinary fundraisers in Los Angeles.

schools on wheels

School on Wheels provides academic tutoring to children living in shelters, motels, cars, group foster homes and on the streets in Southern California. They provide homeless students stability in a time of stress and transition, and help them achieve educational success so that they may break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. Blue Plate Oysterette is happy to support this cause and help provide donations for the cause year after year. 

children's action network

Donating an Oyster Bar to the Wine, Women & Shoes event not only allowed us to talk to guests about oysters and share our favorite treat, it also allowed us to raise money for the Children's Action Network. CAN finds homes for more than 100,000 children in the U.S. waiting for an adoptive family and improve outcomes for 400,000 children in foster care. Blue Plate Oysterette is proud to be a regular donor to this event.

St. anne youth program

St. Anne's Youth Program serves an important need in the community for at-risk youth in an area that has suffered from a history of youth violence. The youth program includes activities that allow young teens the opportunity to succeed as well as evolve into solid members of the community. Blue Plate Oystertette is thrilled to be a part of such an important cause.
