Annual Crab Feed Menu Adds Pasta

The 17th annual Cupertino Rotary Crab Feed isn't just about being crabby any more. Pasta and other goodies are in the pot, too.

Looking to be more accommodating to the community’s diverse diet and food preferences, the menu for the annual on Friday expands this year to include pasta—plus pesto and marinara sauces—and a Caesar salad—not just some plain ol’ green stuff—and of course, the star of the show; crab.

The 17th annual Crab Feed tickets are still available for $40 for all the crab and pasta you can consume; and an added incentive is that $20 of the ticket price is tax deductible.

Appetizers such as chips and salsa and a veggie tray will be available, and for those with a sweet tooth, some kind of delectable chocolate, plus cookies for dessert.

It takes dozens of volunteers to put on the event each year, and this time around students from the Rotary’s Interact club take on more responsibility, says Tina Ferguson.

“We’re giving them leadership roles,” she says.

The students, who are officers from the Interact groups at their respective high schools of Monta Vista, Lynbrook, and Cupertino, assembled teams who will volunteer at the event. The Interact officers will lead and manage their teams to perform various roles for the feeding frenzy.

Proceeds from the event support a variety of programs, Ferguson says, such as the kids fishing, Dr. Seuss reading, Christmas shopping days, and more.

The event includes a raffle where prizes such as Sharks tickets, Ridge wine, or tickets to the Celebrity Forum may be won.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 13, and will be held at at St. Joseph of Cupertino Parish, 10110 N. De Anza Blvd.
