A couple of weeks back we let you know about the changeover from Oporto to Feisty Chicken & Grill.
We recently learned of a deal the chain is offering that will please parents.
On Sundays, kids 10 and under can get one of three “Peeps” meals for free with the purchase of an entrée, side and a beverage.
It’s just one of several daily specials the chain is offering.
Today (April 22) is Earth Day, and both Loving Hut and Feisty Chicken & Grill have deals lined up in celebration.
Vegan restaurant Loving Hut is offering 10% off when you present this coupon any day through Saturday (April 27). You have the option to display the coupon on your mobile device or print it in color or black and white.
Loving Hut has locations in Claremont (175 N. Indian Hill Blvd., Suite A 102) and Upland (903 W. Foothill Blvd.).

Apparently, Southern California residents had little appetite for the Portuguese-influenced Australian chicken sandwich restaurant, Oporto.
The franchise owner of the three U.S. locations of the Aussie chain — which opened in 2011 — is converting them to Feisty Chicken & Grill.
The refashioned restaurants will open at 11 a.m. Sunday (April 7).
Ontario’s Panda Inn, which has been in business 20 years, was closed for several weeks while undergoing a remodeling.
The restaurant reopened today (March 28) with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, complete with lion dancers.
The chain is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, with the Pasadena location having opened in 1973.
The Ontario Panda Inn is at 3223 E. Centrelake Drive.
Inland Valley Hope Partners is hosting a fundraising dinner on Monday (March 25) at the Outback Steakhouse, 4492 Ontario Mills Parkway, Ontario.
The dinner is $20, which includes your choice of steak, chicken, salmon or pasta, soup or salad, and coffee, iced tea or soda.
Each table also gets a Bloomin’ Onion.
For the third year, Pacific Western Bank is hosting a food drive for Inland Valley Hope Partners.
Eight branches (five of which are in the Inland Empire) are participating: Corona, Claremont, Covina, Glendora, Irwindale, Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario and Upland.
The bank has set a goal to collect 500 food items per location. Last year it collected three tons of food, which helped feed about 150 families for a week.
Since 1968, Inland Valley Hope Partners has provided food, shelter and supportive services to children and families in need. It provides close to 70,000 pounds of food every month, so your donations are definitely needed.
If you would like to host a food drive at your company please call Fran Robertson at Inland Valley Hope Partners 909-622-3806x 231.

LA/Ontario International Airport has never been a culinary hotbed, but it just got a little bit worse.
The Applebee’s in Terminal 2 (AeroMexico, Alaska/Horizon, Continental, Delta, Great Lakes and United/United Express) has closed, “temporarily.”
That narrows your food choices in that terminal down to El Paseo Cafe & Bar, Schlotzsky’s Deli and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
Our suggestion: Leave early and stop at In-N-Out on the way to the airport.
