Chop Block Cooking & Catering

Maybe you've already eaten my food, and maybe you're still waiting to try it, but it is my goal to feed as many hungry people as possible and make a difference in our community, and I need your help to make this happen.

I have the opportunity to purchase a used food trailer that is licensed to operate in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, but I will need some additional support in order to purchase the necessary appliances, equipment, disposables, and utensils. Commercial-grade products are not cheap!

The menu would center around slow-cooked meats-- think pulled pork, braised short ribs, slow roasted chicken, etc. You can order a meat, sauce, and toppings and choose to eat it on a bun, roll, panini, taco, or salad. Maybe I will even add on a meat-free item for all my vegan friends. I would be cooking up good, old fashioned meals with modern twists. I plan on serving hot meals, frozen yogurt, and coffee throughout the day. The primary operating sites would be parks, sports fields, beaches, commercial areas, and private events. My vision is to bring gourmet, fast, casual cuisine to places where you might not ordinarily find these types of good eats at good prices.

So what exactly is the purpose of this endeavor that I'm asking you to pitch in for? Well, first I will need to pay my bills and basic living expenses. But beyond that, I plan on establishing a non-profit scholarship fund for sober, recovering men and women to attend four-year colleges and universities, and donating a portion of all profits from food sales towards this cause. My community has helped me in numerous ways through the years and shaped who I am today, and this is one small way that I will be able to give back.

So, please consider donating what you are able to towards this cause. There are numerous worthy causes out there, but you can be assured that this is one that will make a direct impact on individual lives. Thank you for your consideration, and if we are able to raise enough funds to launch this food trailer, stay tuned for events such as the grand opening parties! You will all be invited.
