TASTE OF LARCHMONT brings the community together each year and supports local food pantries. Above, attendes at a recent Taste event gather at dessert pavilion. This year, it’s Aug. 28.

Hope-Net’s “Taste of Larchmont” celebrates its 25th anniversary on Mon., Aug. 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. when attendees will sample food from the boulevard’s restaurants.

The neighborhood event brings the community together while supporting the Hope-Net food pantry mission.

In addition to food from local eateries, a dessert pavilion will offer delicious pastries, cheeses and coffee. The event includes a silent auction and raffle. Prizes include dinner for two at 12 restaurants.

Douglas Ferraro, Hope-Net executive director, said the event last year raised nearly $50,000 and helped Hope-Net provide supplemental food for more than 350,000 persons in our local area.

Committee members include Laurie Brown, Patricia Carroll, Steve Tator, Brian Milder, Jane Gilman and Bill Gaddy.

The event was originated in 1993 by the Larchmont Chronicle to celebrate the  newspaper’s 30th anniversary.

In 1988, a collaboration of Los Angeles area religious congregations had founded Hope-Net to address hunger and homeless needs. First opened in the Wilshire Center area of Los Angeles, the agency now encompasses Koreatown, Figueroa/Adams, Hollywood, Los Feliz, and Silverlake.

Tickets are $40 each. Call 213-389-9949, or visit
