Luna Grill in March, after schools were closed because of the pandemic, the threat of hunger became even more real to San Diego children who rely on the nutritious meals served at school to get by. That's when Luna Grill (which was founded in San Diego) stepped in to help with the Good Card program. For every $5 a consumer spends on a Luna Grill gift card, a nutritious meal is prepared and donated to kids in need through the San Diego Food Bank. Luna is open for take-out and delivery orders, so purchasing the Good Card is an easy way for consumers to make a donation which paying for their own meals at the same time.
