There are several restaurants in the Pasadena area that will be holding special events this Valentine’s Day, but one of them that will be giving back to the community is Union Restaurant.

In conjunction with St. Vincent’s, for the entire month of February, Union Restaurant is participating in St. Vincent’s Meals On Wheels Food Is Love event.

For every dish of Spaghetti alla Chitarra purchased during the month of February, Union will donate $1 from each sale to St. Vincent Meals on Wheels to help hungry seniors in our community eat nutritious meals!

“We’ve worked with St. Vincent’s Meals on Wheels for a few years now – primarily we’ve worked their charity fundraising events like Evening on the Beach or have donated silent auction items to help support the organization” says Union Restaurant Marie Petulla / Co-Owner at Union Pasadena

“Meals on Wheels is a great organization,” she said.

“Sometimes we forget about the homebound elderly community that still needs our help and attention. Meals on Wheels provide a great support to a forgotten community of individuals and makes sure that they are receiving the proper nutrition that they might be able to afford. This really resonates with us since we focus so much on where our food come from and informing the community about sourcing, food waste and sustainability.”

Petulla said she hopes to bring awareness to an underserved community that needs help.

“We hope to use our platform for good and raise as much as we can to help St. Vincent’s.”

Petulla hopes the community will support this important cause.

“St. Vincent’s Meals on Wheels is a great non-profit to consider supporting and if you can’t stop into the restaurant to participate in the promotion you can still contribute online at https://www.stvincentmow.org/donate/”.
