Roy Choi and Salesforce team up to Make Change

Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is partnering with Salesforce to provide 5,000 meals to our neighbors this summer. For every post using the tags @salesforce and #platformforchange, Salesforce will donate 20 meals to the Food Bank.  Your participation will help the Food Bank distribute more meals this summer to our neighbors in need.


Last Thursday, Salesforce hosted MAKE CHANGE, a Salesforce Trailblazer Series event that featured celebrity chef and change agent Roy Choi @RidingShotgunLA and Evan Kleiman @evankleiman at the FLOOD Magazine gallery @floodmagazine.

“We have so much power as individuals and communities. What if all chefs around the world said, ‘It’s time to make a change. We’re going to bring people together.’ Everyone would have to say ‘Yes, chef!’ Otherwise we’d stop cooking,” said Roy.

They discussed using food culture as a platform for change and Roy’s venture of using his businesses and food culture to help improve the Watts community in Los Angeles.

In conjunction with the event, the Salesforce team volunteered the following day, packing 1,680 senior nutrition kits.
