Homeboy Industries in City Hall

Hosted by

At Los Angeles City Hall today, Father Greg Boyle's Homeboy Industries opened the Homeboy Diner to sell food to politicians, bureaucrats and visitors. It'll be staffed by young people who've decided to leave their troubled past behind and turn their lives around. The Homeboy Diner is an extension of the Homegirl Café, which started in Boyle Heights and is now a state-of-the-art restaurant in Chinatown. Chef Pati Zarate, who's been there since the beginning, cooks and trains 30 to 40 homegirls at a time in the food service industry.
