Mom-and-pop food vendors evicted from Los Angeles community college campuses

WOODLAND HILLS – Ofir Bass closed two restaurants and shelled out tens of thousands of dollars to bring a food plaza to life in the long-vacant campus restaurant at Los Angeles Pierce College.

Then the district overseeing Los Angeles community colleges moved this week to hire a single food provider for its nine campuses and give local vendors like Bass’ Falafelicious Catering the boot.

“This whole thing is beyond devastating,” said Bass, 40, of West Hills, a native of Israel, seated behind his food court Friday that was temporarily closed after spring graduation.

“It’s going to ruin us financially,” he said. “There are a number of vendors at other schools who are being kicked out as well.”
