Two charities have received $7,000 as a result of penalties imposed on a food company convicted of health violations.
The donations, $3,000 to the Holy Cross Center and $4,000 to the Center for Pacific Asian Families, both of which help the underprivileged, were made by K.Y. Foods.
The checks were delivered by Los Angeles City Atty. James K. Hahn.
K.Y. Foods was a major West Coast producer of Korean-style food until last Dec. 5 when it was banned from operating for two years after being convicted of numerous health violations.
As part of its sentence, the company was ordered to pay $20,375 in fines and penalties.
