Luna Grill Donates 50,000 Meals

San Diego-based Luna Grill launched its second giving program, “Feeding the Frontline,” dedicated to feeding 20,000 local hospital workers over the coming weeks. Combined with the company’s on-going “The Good Card” program, a commitment made to feeding local kids hot lunches, Luna Grill is providing a combined 50,000 meals countywide.

“San Diego is our home—We live here and work here, and in this time of need, everyone is looking for ways to do good—We do good with food,” says Luna Grill Chief Brand Officer Rich Pinnella. “One of the ways we know we can help and show our appreciation to those critical healthcare workers at local hospitals is the donation of fresh, hot, nourishing meals,” he added.

Luna Grill is deploying its existing catering team to work with hospital staffs to determine needs, hours and locations for meal deliveries in the coming weeks, with the pledge of donating 20,000 meals across multiple locations. “We are able to utilize our comprehensive catering resources and operations teams to serve hospitals, while also keeping our staff engaged and employed,” said Pinnella.
