Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Just because the holidays are long gone doesn't mean it's an excuse to be a self-absorbed jerk wad. An easy way to give back to the community is by donating blood. And this Thursday over at Real Food Daily in Pasadena, you'll get free food for doing so. Not only that, but healthful, plant-based food.

From 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m., the restaurant will be hosting its third blood drive in partnership with the Huntington Hospital. They'll have a mobile outside to take your donations, and instead of getting lame chips and cookies afterwards, you'll be rewarded with sumptuous vegan eats. Each donor will get free vegan snacks and a complimentary entree.

The offer to donate and receive the RFD meal voucher extends to the first 50 people who donate in Huntington Hospital through March 16. You can find out more info here.
