LB Dem Club collect 457 lbs. of protein for Laguna Food Pantry 


Donors rolled up in golf carts, Teslas and well-used Toyotas to drop off peanut butter and tuna for waiting volunteers from the Laguna Beach Democratic Club (LBDC) for its food drive to benefit the Laguna Food Pantry. In just three hours, the club collected 457 pounds of shelf-stable proteins, plus a few checks totaling several hundred dollars.

The collection at Bluebird Park was deemed a great success by LBDC chair Peggy Wolff, who said, “It was a beautiful morning to greet the steady stream of donors from all walks of life and all political stripes who dropped by with food to help people in need. Both peanut butter and tuna can make a meal. We were happy to help provide these important basics to augment the nutritional needs of families and call attention to the Pantry’s good and needed work.”
