The story behind the unique food establishment is actually quite captivating! Malachi Jenkins is the mastermind behind Trap Kitchen and decided to make money in a more conventional way after retiring a life affiliated with the Crips and Pirus. After moving to Las Vegas to pursue an education at Le Cordon Blue, Jenkins dropped out after picking up the essential skills because of a high tuition. Jenkins moved back to Los Angeles in 2013 and opened a business with a couple of friends with the goal of feeding their local community in South L.A., a neighborhood that’s infamous for limited access to fresh food.
