A parking lot lined with red tassels marks the opening of the 18th Gelson's Market location in La Cañada Flintridge. Food chat sites like Chowhound suggest that the shopping experience at Gelson's is somewhere between that at Whole Foods and Ralphs. In an effort to get to know the store better, I took it upon myself to test that theory with a very unscientific experiment. Below are the results. By most accounts, Gelson's is renowned for their high-quality meats, seafood and produce.

Twinkies and Ding Dongs are long gone at the former Hostess bakery near Glendale, where a new tenant is moving into part of the vacant building and staking its claim in the Los Angeles online organic-food scene. Good Eggs L.A. opened its distribution center this month just steps away from the Los Angeles River at 2760 Clearwater St., south of the Glendale (2) Freeway. Now fresh fruits, veggies, eggs, meats and seafood are replacing the sweet confections made by the prior tenant. “Our mission is to grow and sustain local food economies,” said Max Kanter, community builder at Good Eggs, a company that works with about 70 Southern California farmers and food producers to deliver online groceries to customers throughout the Los Angeles area.

There is no better way to show love this Valentine's Day than to give the gift of food. That's the sentiment the Salvation Army of Glendale is hoping to spread this weekend with the “Love Food Drive.” The nonprofit service provider saw a 20% decline from 2012 to 2013 in food donations, which help feed 700 local residents who include working families in need of meal assistance. The decline has led to a significant shortage in food supplies that would generally keep the Salvation Army's pantry stocked.

Local parents asked an expert for tips Thursday night on how to better guide their teens through the vulnerable years in which their brains are still developing. The years during which a teen's brain is developing are also the years when “teens need parents more than ever,” said Tina Givrad, who has a doctorate degree in biomedical engineering. She spoke during a program sponsored by the CV Alliance, a Crescenta Valley-based organization that provides resources to parents and teens about substance abuse.

The first thing they tell you when you sit down at Brand 158, the month-old restaurant across from the Americana, is that they don't accept tips. Staff are paid competitive wages and the best tip, they say, is a patron's return visit. The second thing they tell you is that payment is preferred by credit or debit card. Servers handling food and bartenders squeezing limes are not allowed to touch cash or coins. If cash is all a patron has, gift cards for the exact amount are available at the host station.

Six-year-old Camilla Lopez timidly walked along a table topped with dozens of dolls - soon one would be hers if she could just find the right one. She finally settled on a girly doll resembling a baby and gently placed it in a black plastic bag. The doll was just one of several toys that she and her two sisters received Saturday from deputies at the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station, where the holiday spirit was in full swing. “They are doing good for the kids,” said Camilla's father, Oscar Lopez of Tujunga.

By 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, a line snaked around the back of the Maple Park Community Center as roughly 70 people waited in line at a new Glendale food bank located in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods. It was 30 minutes before the food bank, operated by International Families Assn., officially opened, and by 4 p.m., two hours before it closed, volunteers had served about 200 people. PHOTOS: Food bank of International Families Association gives to the needy The food bank, which has been open on Wednesday afternoons for about two months, serves 7,000 pounds of donated food to hundreds of people a week, said Ara Hanbardzunyan, chairman of the association, a nonprofit based in Glendale that provides food and clothing to the needy.

Just as things had begun to look glum this holiday season for coordinators of the local food bank, Loaves and Fishes, an anonymous donor heard their call for help and bestowed them with $20,000. The donor's sizable gifts, including 15 shopping carts full of Costco groceries, came after he read a News-Press story earlier this month about the food bank's need for funds to fill its pantry, which feeds hundreds of families, seniors and the homeless. "I am flabbergasted," said Lora Young, the food bank's program coordinator.

Rice and beans may be simple, but those pantry staples are essential for any family desperate to prepare meals on a meager budget. David Cormier saw the value in those food staples firsthand when he was deployed to Bosnia and Somalia under the United Nations Peacekeeping forces. During his missions, U.N. representatives distributed rice to hungry families who often holding only cups to gather supplies. Cormier later returned home to see many local families were also in dire need of food and struggling to stay afloat during the protracted recession.

Everyone has their favorite Thai takeout place. Where I live, I typically do Min's Kitchen or Woodlands Cafe. But if I lived near Kozy Korner, I'd be going there regularly. It's for people who, like me, enjoy strong Thai flavors - lemon grass, lime, chili peppers, basil, galanga, fish sauce. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Kozy Korner is as tiny as it sounds. However, once you're seated at one of the 10 or so tables it's not an issue. A group of Thai women keep the restaurant humming, boxing up to-go orders, delivering steaming plates with lightning speed and all while avoiding collisions with an impressive sixth sense.
