Join Us on Dec 27 and Help Friends of the Rainforest!

Spread the spirit of meaningful giving this holiday season! Join us in Town and Country on December 27 for our next Giveback Tuesday event. This month, we are partnering with Friends of the Rainforest. This nonprofit organization has three main programs that inspire kids and adults to protect and preserve the 55,000-acre Children's Eternal Rainforest in Costa Rica and others.

Each month, we’re proud to feature a local nonprofit charity and donate 100% of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the organization. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included. So far, Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria has donated $321,500 to nonprofit organizations here in St. Louis.

Friends of the Rainforest’s three main programs are its:

  • conservation grants given organizations that work directly with the rainforest.
  • EcoTours that bring students and adults to the Children's Eternal Rainforest for on-the-ground study and exploration.
  • education program, which provides free environmental education to schools and community groups in St. Louis.

Funds raised from Giveback Tuesday will support their Education Fund. The fund pays for lesson materials, entrance fees to regional education conferences, and the compensation for additional educators. Topics covered include biodiversity, tropical ecology, and the importance of the rainforest.

The nonprofit, founded in 2002, reached over 1,400 kids and adults with its lessons in 2021. Each year, they serve around 45 people through their EcoTours. Currently, the conservation grants are going toward Monteverde Conservation League’s education program, which has so far reached 290 kids and adults through 17 field trips.

It’s time to eat, drink, and be merry! 100% of earned profits will be benefiting Friends of the Rainforest and their meaningful cause. Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria is open from Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. To make a dinner reservation or order curbside pickup, please visit www.katiespizzaandpasta.com.

Thank you as always for your continued support. We are beyond grateful for your generosity this year. We hope to see you on December 27 at our Town and Country location to help us support our community this holiday season!
