We feel so grateful that we’ve already sold out for our inaugural #AkasaDinner with @helloaishwarya Founder of @wearebrightland ! We’d love to keep you all looped in for future dinners and we’re already anticipating our next one in celebration of Earth Day (with a special launch to pair with the event). These dinners directly impact the students and families we work with and your contribution and support allows us to continue working with more than 300 youth on a weekly basis. More from us very soon ♥️ .

Classes have been going so well so far this year! As our Chef @nina_anakar described earlier this week, “These kumquats (and a bunch of gorgeous tree ripened limes) were donated to Akasa by a woman who’s beautiful edible garden produces more than enough for her own family, and they live just a few miles away from the @breseela foundation where we work with local youth every Monday and Wednesday afternoon. We cook with them and share nourishing snacks and meals that are much needed after their long days at school. Because of this woman’s generosity and the trees that we keep in our gardesn, all of our students have tried kumquats and other unique citrus, most of them for the very first time!” Enjoy your weekend and we’ll see you all back on Monday. .

Thanks to this beautiful winter rain, our three Akasa Edible Gardens are thriving! This is swiss chard and kale harvested on Friday that will be used for our classes today and then distributed to parents during our parent workshop this week. Because of the food system our team has developed, none of the produce goes to waste and in fact, we’ll be able to feed over 150 in just a few days. Follow along in stories this week for garden tips, kitchen secrets and more. .

And we’re back! In addition to seasonality and sustainability, one of Akasa’s core competencies is environmental justice, especially on how it relates to the food industry. This week we are unbelievably excited to have guest speakers to help unpack this complex topic with our students. Activists and Co-Founders of Waste Watch @thisisbwright and @ggggbone will join us in class this week!

We are beyond excited to introduce our most recent collaboration with the beloved cafe on Pico @paper_plastik - Paper or Plastik’s mission is to sustain its customers not only with quality food and drink, but also with culture and community all under one roof. They’re leading by example and establishing a giveback program with us to establish the “Akasa Bowl” - GABA Sprouted Brown Rice topped with Savory Koda Farms Mochi and Shaved Vegetables. $2 of each bowl will go directly toward Akasa to support our mission | Get yourself over there soon to taste its goodness and simultaneously support a direct giveback to Akasa programming here in LA! 📸 @seanryanpierce 🥣💙 .

Ashleigh Parsons is the Founder of Akasa. She was born and raised in NJ and has lived in CA for 10 years. She's been with Akasa since its inception in 2012 and is continuously inspired by the creative community that nurtures the organization. With a Master's in Human Development + Psychology from Harvard University and a background in education and food, she's interested in food justice, food deserts and health disparities and committed to creating a program that can help address the issues that our city (and country) face and explore the power of a shared meal. She is honored to have the incredible team of women involved this year and eager to see what Akasa's future holds. .

We are honored & excited to introduce the Akasa team ~ a group of women who will be working together to provide Akasa to youth & families in LA. First up, our lead gardener, Amanda Beattie. Amanda grew up in LA and has been passionate about cooking and the power of sharing meals from a young age. In college Amanda broadened her knowledge of food, working with the Harvard Food Literacy Project to educate herself and her peers about food systems/food justice issues in the US. This led her to apprentice on an organic vegetable farm in the south of France and later on a farm in Morocco, then to co-manage a 1/4 acre urban farm in Lincoln Heights under the guidance of farmer and artist Britt Browne. Amanda believes that focusing on positive action in our local surroundings is a powerful tool for personal and social transformation, and it is this conviction she hopes to share with students as Lead Gardener at Akasa. Welcome to the team, Amanda!! 🍃🌱 .

Back to School Benefit This Sat! Tickets avail @akasa.community 🌿🥒💚
・・・
We’re thrilled to be showing our second Akasa Short Film. Jasmine was one of our 3rd grade students at Sandra Cisneros Elementary. When we first began introducing our recipes to her class, she would not eat the food. We would then ask her to at least try it and if she didn’t like it, she didn’t have to eat it. First she only ate small portions and then enjoyed the food so much that she would ask for seconds! Her mom, Aracely was so surprised by her drastic change that she began coming to our parent workshops to learn to make meals that Jasmine now loved eating. This program is having a powerful impact on our community. Please consider purchasing a ticket to our Back to School Benefit to learn more about Akasa and support this wonderful program 🌱 Link in profile 👆🏽

a huge thank you to @femaleanimalla & @botanicafood for hosting their live reading last week on behalf of AKASA. With their kind donation of $875 we are able to provide recipes to an entire semester of Akasa students. Grateful and inspired by the los angeles community for their continued support of our blossoming organization

Akasa is a female run organization. This is Araz Martin, our Lead Chef of Akasa. We don’t talk about her a ton because she’s always working behind the scenes, countless hours to develop the Akasa recipes, create the Akasa curriculum and educate the youth and families we work with about healthy, affordable, delicious recipes. She has been in the culinary world for many years and applies the expertise she learned in kitchens all over LA to our program each week. The program wouldn’t be where it is without her talent & diligence. 🌱 Photo by @lanitrock .

We’re convinced there’s some sort of magic that happens in planting, growing and cooking with your peers that can’t be taught in a textbook or brochure. Photo by @jaykim.jpg 💚🌱

In the spirit of Earth Day and honoring Mother Earth, we’d like to invite you to think about making a contribution to Akasa, which teaches 200 low-income students on a weekly basis about planting, growing, cooking & eating sustainable, nourishing food. Small contributions go a long way - $25 pays for the food for a single class of students. You can also support us by choosing #amazonsmile whenever you make those amazon purchases. :) Link in bio & to learn more, join us at the Silverlake Meadow this Sunday to celebrate earth day & raise awareness for AKASA.

“We think [Akasa] deserves more praise, awareness and support than anyone else,” Wynn says. “Their programs can only exist with the support of people and businesses that see and believe in its value to the community. These students represent the future health of our community, the future decision makers, and possibly future teachers, cooks and ambassadors to health here in L.A.” ~ Thank you for the beautiful coverage ~ link in bio @foodandwine @triniti.la @lifecycleoffood 📷 @carmenchan

50% of the population of California has prediabetes. Research increasingly shows that this can be prevented by eating real foods as opposed to processed foods. Akasa works with students & families in LA to plant, grow, harvest, cook & enjoy healthy, delicious & accessible recipes together so we can avoid poor health outcomes with future generations & empower our community to make informed decisions about their own health & wellbeing! 📷@carmenchan PS This rainbow chard came right from our garden :) 🌿🍃🌱
