From October 1 to 31, Pasta La Feasta invites you to chow down for a cause. In celebration of National Pasta Month, the second annual culinary event has teamed up with 11 Calgary restaurants to give back to the community. Each local restaurant has created an exclusive pasta dish, which is available on the menu for the whole month of October. For each dish sold, $3 goes to The Alex Community Food Centre. Last year, the event raised more than over $7,000.
