Great event on SUN 6/20: fundraiser for Nina since the police are pestering her and she needs enough money for a food truck. The Pambazo-Quesadilla-Gordita Fest fundraiser will be held on Sunday from 11 AM – 3 PM at Angeli Caffe on Melrose just west of La Brea. Buy a Pambazo, Quesadilla and/or Gordita for yourself and everyone’s father. It’ll be the best tasting fundraiser you ever did help support. And you’ll also be helping to sustain an important part of L.A.’s culture.

Here's the scoop:
The generosity of the Los Angeles food community knows no bounds. On Sunday, Evan Kleiman is organizing a fundraiser at Angeli Caffe (7274 Melrose Ave.) for Nina Garcia of Nina's Foods, the unanimous victor of this year's Vendy Awards. Kleiman is teaming up with la Asociación de Loncheros L.A. Familia Unida de California to help Nina get a truck and avoid harassment by the authorities. Monies raised will also go towards establishing a micro-finance fund available to other street food vendors. Instead of Angeli's usual Italian fare, Kleiman's kitchen will pump out some of Nina's famous classics, such as the pambazo, quesadillas, salsa seca, and pozole this Sunday, June 20, from 11 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
