Share-A-Meal for Thanksgiving with Pasadena Sandwich Company

Happy Fall!!!

The Pasadena Share A Meal Program is a collaborated effort with the Pasadena Sandwich Company, the Stephen E Fink Fund, Pasadena Unified School District, Pasadena Fire Department, Sydney Paige® Inc., and Remainders Creative Reuse.  This program was designed to provide a hot Thanksgiving Day meal to over 100 families from our Pasadena community. 

The unique needs of these families have been identified by the Families in Transition Office of the Pasadena Unified School District and all are invited individually to the event via hand delivered invitations.  This event is unique in the sense that we focus on feeding entire families in a sit down, restaurant-style environment where they are served their meals.   Not only will we be serving them a delicious meal that will fill their stomachs and warm their hearts, but we will give them a safe, fun-loving, and stress-free environment where they can participate in activities like arts and crafts, enjoy a Photo Booth,  and gather for a professionally taken family portrait.

This day makes such a difference in the lives of these families and reminds us what Thanksgiving Day is truly about, remembering how blessed we are, being with family, and giving back. It is because of the generosity of our community of family, friends,  and contributors that this event is possible. Every family will go home with a Blessing Bag filled with goods, services and certificates from all of your generous donations. Not only will they receive blessings on Thanksgiving but also throughout the year thanks to the Pasadena Families in Transition office who is happy to disperse these donations as needed.

This year our Share A Meal program will take place on November 23, 2017.
