Mexican restaurant Old Juan’s Cantina recently earned $2,000 for the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County.
The funds were raised through its annual fundraiser by donating $1 for every item ordered off the specials menu during the month of December.
The amount is increased through Food Bank efficiencies, which turn $1 into $10 worth of food.
