This coming Saturday at Farnsworth Park in Altadena, the Fork Foundation is hosting a free breakfast with enough pancakes, they proclaim, to “feed the entire city and beyond.”

In return for free pancakes, founders Philip Coombes (Teles Properties) and Ken Marshall (Coffee Gallery Backstage) are asking attendees to bring non-perishable food items, which will be donated to Union Station Homeless Services (cash donations will be welcome as well).

For those who don’t know, Coombes and Marshall are behind the giant 18-foot-tall wooden fork installation¬†where St. John and Pasadena Avenue meet, aka “the fork in the road.” Throughout the year, they hold food drives on site or at other locations in their continuing pursuit of alleviating hunger in the community.

“Put the Fork in Hunger” Free Pancake Breakfast
Saturday, Sept. 29th, 7:30-11 a.m.
Farnsworth Park Hall, 568 E. Mount Curve, Altadena
For more info or to volunteer, call Philip Coombes at 626.644.3227
