An anonymous donor is covered the costs for plate lunches today for the annual L&L 52-cent Plate Lunch Event.
The 14th annual celebration was held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Keeaumoku Street location in the Honolulu Walmart.
Three plate lunches were available: Kalua Pork with Cabbage, Chicken Katsu, and Hamburger Steak.
The first 10 customers in line also received a month’s supply of Pepsi drinks and the first 100 customers received free L&L T-shirts. All funds, including the anonymous donation, will be given in full to Goodwill Industries of Hawaii.
Last year’s event attracted more than 1,500 participants. The annual event commemorates L&L’s birthday.
Eddie Flores and Johnson Kam bought L&L in 1976. However, L&L was officially established in 1952 as L&L Dairy in Waimanalo, formed by Robert and Ida Lee. Today, L&L has close to 200 locations in 14 U.S. States and Japan.
