How Businesses Are Partnering with the Nehemiah Project to Help Youth in L.A.

The Lobster is a landmark L.A. restaurant with a mouthwatering menu and breathtaking beachfront view, and this holiday season the venue is serving up something extra special.

“Extra” caught up with renowned chef Govind Armstrong, who revealed the restaurant is teaming up with the Nehemiah Project L.A.

The pioneering new program helps kids transitioning out of the foster care system, and helps them learn job and life skills. Armstrong told us that they plan to donate $1 for every lobster they sell.

“Extra” also spoke with Nehemiah Project Founder Bishop Ed Smith, board member Jessica Chandler, and advocate Barry Bartlett to learn more. Watch the video!
