Glendale Salvation Army's annual Thanksgiving dinner fills 300 stomachs and provides plenty of fellowship.Rocky Porter has been coming to the Glendale Salvation Army's Thanksgiving dinner every year since 1999. Without it, the tall, soft-spoken man would likely spend the day hungry, biding his time in the gutted shack where he lives. "It's nice to go someplace you know," Porter said. At the dinner, Porter exchanged handshakes and greetings with Salvation Army staff and volunteers, obviously a popular face.

Darleene Barrientos Rice and water or a three-course dinner? The decision would be easy for most people, but the Glendale Temple Youth Group wants to illustrate at its Hunger Banquet on Saturday that most of the people in the world do not have that choice. "You get to see visually and experience how food is distributed," President Natasha Newman said. "If you're eating the nice meal, you get to see who's not eating the nice meal. If you're not eating the nice meal, you get to see who is."

GLENDALE — Students are facing a price hike for school meals to fatten up a food-services budget, which officials say has slimmed down in recent years. "I'm anticipating the possibility this year with the costs going up … that we may not break even this year," said Agnes Lally, director of food services. The proposal will add 25 cents to lunches and breakfasts for the 2007-08 school year and an additional 25 cents for the 2008-09 school year, Lally said. The Board of Education briefly discussed the matter at Tuesday's board meeting.

I ask the kids at the beginning of each year a question that I think is relevant to their education: “How many of you have a family meal every night or most nights?” The result of that query hasn’t changed much in recent years. Only about one-fourth of the kids respond with a “Yes.” The greater number by far have no such family routine, or to use a better word, tradition. When asked what they do instead, I get a variety of responses: “I make my own dinner.

About 300 people filed into the Glendale Salvation Army's Windsor Road location on Thursday for its traditional Thanksgiving Day meal, an event with a more than 20-year history. Though the yearly meal feeds needy families who might not otherwise enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving meal, fostering a sense of community during the holidays is one of the more rewarding goals of the program, Salvation Army Capt. James Sloan said. "We try to make it not just for needy particularly, but for people who are lonely during the holidays," he said.

Claudia Peschiutta LOS ANGELES -- While many celebrated Armenian Christmas by sharing a meal with family members, others did so by providing a meal for homeless people. The Los Angeles Chapter of Homenetmen, an international athletic and scouting organization, sponsored a meal for about 350 homeless people at the Los Angeles Mission on Thursday. "Armenians in general, because of the Genocide, understand the meaning of homelessness," said Steve Artinian, chairman of the Los Angeles chapter, referring to the Armenian Genocide that began in 1915.

Two R.D. White Elementary School students traveled and dined in grand style Monday -- the fruits of being the top fund-raisers for technology-related needs at their school. Children at the school raised several hundred dollars selling household items. The top priority for the funds is to buy ink cartridges for school printers. The entire school participated in the four-month program, which was organized by R.D. White technology chairwoman Kelly Hume. Fifth-grader Tayra Quinones, 10, and third-grader Sharleen Sherafatian, 8, were picked up at their school in a beautiful black limousine donated by Art Executive Service.

It's official. Glendale has arrived. It now has a supper club on par with steakhouses in San Francisco, Miami and Las Vegas. It's no surprise because Michael Mina, head of the Mina Group of restaurants and the force behind Bourbon Steak Los Angeles, has 20 other concept restaurants in cities like San Francisco, Miami and Las Vegas. The Vegas vibe looms large here and I mean that in the best way possible. The space was created from scratch by in-demand design team AvroKO, evoking a first-class lounge feel.

The folks at Cordon's Smokehouse & Grill are smoking purists. Their barbecue philosophy is not about sticky sauces or high-heat grill marks. It's about high-quality meats and fish smoked slowly over hard wood, seasoned by the best blend of rub spices. The meat this technique renders meanders into jerky territory, where the edges are crispy and the flavor of the meat itself reigns supreme. It is tender all the way to the bone, though not what you'd call super juicy. The offset smoker sits just outside the front door of the little cafe (which is attached to the beloved Cordon's Ranch Market)

Keeping children fed is important in making sure students remain healthy throughout the summer so they are prepared for the next school year, organizers said. “The lack of nutrition during the summer months could lead to a more challenging school year the next year,” said Jennifer Chin, director of food service with Glendale Unified.

The City Council gave the OK for staff to apply for a $250,000 grant through Los Angeles County to fund an elderly nutrition program from July 2012 to June 2016. The grant is available to agencies that provide meals to seniors who are at least 60 years old, but it requires a 15% match from the city. Glendale has successfully applied for the money since 1979. The city serves about 41,000 hot meals each year at the Adult Recreation Center, Sparr Heights Community Center and Pacific Park Community Center, and delivers about 12,000 meals to homebound seniors.

Patrick Minassians’ interest in food and nutrition started organically. Last summer, the 13-year-old, who attends Flintridge Preparatory School in La Cañada Flintridge, began leafing through cookbooks at his Glendale home, selecting dinner recipes for his family. Soon he joined his mother Mary Minassians in the kitchen. “His palette just opened up, and that is when he became interested in what I am cooking,” she said. Now, the eighth-grader has a published cookbook, all 80 pages of it supporting the homeless.
