Lutticken's, Facebook win community service awards

 

Lutticken's, one of Menlo Park's most down-to-earth restaurants, has received an award for making a difference at local schools from the Redwood City-San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce. The cafe also has sites in Redwood City, at 150 Elm St., and on the Stanford campus in Palo Alto.

The business was nominated for the Golden Apple award "for being one of those silent givers who does amazing things for our schools and youth in the community" by donating time, money and food, according to a chamber press release.

Also receiving a Golden Apple: Facebook, for "the enormous impact" the company's generosity has had on Redwood City schools. Facebook recently donated $100,000 worth of laptops and other technology to Fair Oaks, Hoover and Taft elementary schools.
