Pasta La Feasta has returned to Calgary, and it will be running all October long.

In celebration of National Pasta Month, this event is featuring 10 local restaurants that have created a unique pasta dish to try. It runs from October 3 to 31, 2022.

These are the 10 different participating restaurants participating in this year’s Pasta La Feasta, and the dishes each one is making.

This is also all for a good cause.

For each dish sold, $3 will be donated to The Alex Community Food Centre. Incredibly, over $17,000 has been donated through Pasta La Feasta over the past three years, with 2021 being the most successful year, with more than 2,000 dishes sold.

“We are thrilled that these local restaurants have come together once again to help support The Alex Community Food Centre,” said Darrell Howard, Team Lead of The Alex Community Food Centre, in a media release.

“Initiatives like Pasta La Feasta not only support local restaurants but provide our centre with the means to support those in our community experiencing food insecurity,” Howard added.

Everyone loves pasta, especially one-of-a-kind dishes, so stop by a few of these spots this month for a good cause.
