A food truck parodying the disgraced Nini's Deli is selling empanadas June 19-20, splitting proceeds between a Black/Brown group and an LGBTQ fixture, Block Club Chicago noted.

The food truck, called "Nono's Deli," will park at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Ada Street, near the Nini's location, starting at 8 a.m. each day.

Proceeds will be split equally between Chicago organizations My Block, My Hood, My City, a group focused on Black and Brown youth; and Center on Halsted, the Midwest's largest LGBTQ organization.

Nini's Deli, 543 N. Noble St., closed permanently after owner Juan Riesco stood outside the restaurant and, for hours, repeated anti-LGBTQ and -Black Lives Matter comments.
