Homeless agency not accepting prepared food for Thanksgiving meal

Union Station Homeless Services is not accepting home-cooked dishes for the agency’s annual Thanksgiving meal in Pasadena on Thursday.

The organization cannot receive turkey or other prepared food due to stricter health regulations, the agency said in a statement.

Instead, donors can make a donation online, purchase a pie through the organization’s partner, or give non-perishables. Food will be served at Pasadena’s Central Park from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Donations to cover the cost of the Thanksgiving meal can be made on Union Station's website

Pies can be purchased online, too.

Union Station also has a wish list for non-perishable food items

Last year, more than 4,000 people were served at the Thanksgiving Day event.
