Luna Grill, voted “Best Fast Casual” restaurant that features an all-fresh, high-quality, made-to-order Mediterranean menu, is giving 20 percent of its proceeds on Valentine’s Day to Rady Children’s Hospital.

“It’s part of our Luna Gives Back program,” explained Maria Pourteymour, chief cuisine officer of Luna Grill. “Valentine’s Day is not only a day for couples to celebrate their relationships, but it’s a day for people to show their hearts for each other and those less fortunate. That’s what our Luna Gives program is all about.”

On Valentine’s Day, 20 percent of the proceeds from all six Luna Grill locations will be tallied and later donated to Rady Children’s Hospital.

“Our staff is very enthusiastic about this and will be outfitted with t-shirts that say ‘Help Fight Pediatric Illness,'” added Pourteymour. “We’re also giving kids heart-shaped and decorated cookies that day.”
