Liberation Coffee House

The Culinary Arts Program generates income that can be reinvested back into Center programming. Liberation Coffee House, the Center’s café on Santa Monica Boulevard, provides a daily stop for both Center employees and members of the local community to purchase delicious food and beverages.
