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.”
