There are already a few good reasons to pledge to KCRW (“Good Food” — hint, hint). Here's one more: KCRW is asking those who donate to the station during its Winter Pledge Drive to consider donating an additional 40 meals to the L.A. Regional Food Bank instead of requesting a thank-you gift like mugs, CDs or T-shirts. The pledge drive runs through next Friday, Feb. 3. You can also donate $100 or more by calling 800-600-5279 or clicking here.
