Laguna Food Pantry will benefit big-time from Locals’ Day at Another Kind Café this Thursday June 22

 On the cusp of festival season in Laguna Beach, the owners of Another Kind Café have announced they will hold “Locals’ Day” to benefit the Laguna Food Pantry. The popular restaurant, which serves Vietnamese and Thai-inspired cuisine, will donate a generous 50 percent of the day’s sales to the Pantry, the volunteer-run nonprofit that provides free groceries to 300 low-income families a week.

Manager Thinh Nguyen said, “We and the Laguna Food Pantry are both in the business of feeding people, so it was a good fit for us. My wife Vy and I are very interested in helping and being part of the community that has supported us.”
