Cafe Gratitude is one of LA’s most beloved plant-based restaurants. It’s only fitting that for Thanksgiving they will be offering a vegan feast on the house. An annual tradition, all ages are welcomed, and everything is available on a first come, first served basis in a laid-back atmosphere with great vibes and live music. If you and your family would like to assist Cafe Gratitude in seating and serving guests, volunteers are definitely needed. Give them a call and learn what you can do to give back! Proceeds will be donated to Safe Place for Youth to inspire, nurture and empower homeless youth through providing immediate and lasting solutions for a brighter future. And if you want to incorporate some vegan and gluten-free options into your feast at home, you can order sides such as maple miso Brussels sprouts or mashed potatoes and shiitake gravy, plus desserts like pumkin or pecan pie, just to name a few. But act fast! Orders must be placed by Nov. 19 and picked up between 1 and 10 p.m. on Nov. 21.
