The Feasibility Study is officially underway. Graduate students from UCLA are conducting the study in conjunction with a project called “Right to Health in South LA.” We are very excited.  But we really need your help to add validity to the study by filling out a 10 minute survey.  Only fill out the survey if you live in South Los Angeles! So if you have 10 minutes right now – just knock it out so we have the information.


Please fill it out and email it back to us at

Thank You very much! Your response will bring us that much closer to purchasing some organic apples and fresh kale right here in our neighborhood delivered by our local grower!

Your input is vital and along with a timely response. Bank lenders and Grantors highly favor original data- which is what is needed to make SoLA a reality! Please be assured that the information collected from the survey will remain anonymous.  Once the survey is received, it will be placed in a folder, where a UCLA graduate student will code the information into our statistical analysis program.  This will allow us to analyze strictly the data within the survey.

This Just In: Discounted Tickets to the Play “Cafe Vida” for filling out the Survey!

If you fill out the SoLA Survey you can also get discount tickets to the play Cafe Vida, featuring our founding member Bahni Turpin! Just mention to the people at the box office that you are with the SoLA Food Co-op and pay only $10 per a ticket, discounted from $20. That’s half price! Here are the details:

Acclaimed playwright Lisa Loomer pens the first play in The Hunger Cycle, a collaboration between Cornerstone, Homeboy Industries and Homegirl Café. Chabela and Luz are rival homegirls ready to leave the life and begin anew at Café Vida — the only place in the city that gives young women and their troubled pasts a genuine second chance to start a new life free of violence. It’s here that these former enemies choose “la vida” over “la muerte” as they learn to compost, tend a garden, julienne an onion, and rock your lunch order with a smile and a heaping side of transformation.
