Molly Shore Thanksgiving is not always a Norman Rockwell moment of friends and family feasting at an oversized table overflowing with food. For many seniors and shut-ins, it is a lonely time. But this year, as in past years, the Beverly Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and the Joslyn Adult Center joined forces to bring a home-cooked meal to elderly residents. Joslyn recruited community volunteers to take holiday dinners to people who would otherwise not have a traditional Thanksgiving meal, said Renee Crawford, the center's social services supervisor.

You've probably heard that red wine goes with meat and white wine goes with poultry -- and that summertime calls for chilled, white wines while wintertime necessitates the warmth of reds. While these "rules" can be helpful, consider pairing wine and food based on weight, texture, and flavors. Gina Gallo, third-generation winemaker for Gallo of Sonoma, encourages wine drinkers to enjoy different varietals throughout the year and to try unexpected pairings.

Jacqui Brown Local businessman Richard Raad enjoys giving back to the community and has found a way in which to do it. For the past eight years, he's been coming to the Salvation Army in Burbank as a volunteer to help serve Thanksgiving dinner to more than 400 local residents who come each year to enjoy this meal. "I was asked to come here and serve meals the first time," Raad said. "After spending Thanksgiving Eve here, I went home and told my wife 'When we worry about things and we see what's going on out there, things aren't as bad as we thought,' and then I asked her to join me the next year."

As the sun sets tonight, millions of Jews around the world will engage in the time-honored tradition of Passover, a holiday in which the telling of a 3,000-year-old story sometimes turns into conversations about current events, and where eating a meal is less a means to consumption than a celebration of history. For Rabbi Richard Flom of Burbank’s Temple Emanu El, Passover is an opportunity to address some of the ills that plague developing nations, including poverty and hunger.

Soon after Douglas Villalta found out he'd snagged an apartment in Burbank's new affordable housing project , he bought a set of woven straw place mats. His family of four, with its newest addition just 8 months old, would finally have the space to sit down every night for a proper family dinner. For years, Villalta took his plate to the living room at dinner time, while his wife, Evelyn, ate in their tiny kitchen, and his daughter, Genesis, now 12, ate while watching cartoons in the one bedroom they all shared.

Local families dependent on free and reduced-price school meals could find it harder to keep their children fed this summer. The city of Burbank will not be offering its summer parks program and complimentary free meals due to budget cuts, officials said. In the past, the program has operated at four sites, including McKinley and Miller elementary schools and Lundigan and Maxam parks, serving more than 8,500 meals. Roughly one-third of Burbank Unified's 16,670 students qualify for free and reduced-price meals, which are subsidized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

With the city facing a budget scenario in which it will have to tighten its belt to the next notch, no matter the pain, it’s inevitable that some social programs will feel the squeeze. Already the situation has started to manifest itself in senior meals program, where city administrators are floating a proposal to consolidate lunches to two locations — the Joslyn Adult Center and the Don Tuttle Senior Center. The McCambridge Park location, which has been out of service since September while crews install seismic retrofits, would be permanently axed from the program.
