At Sunfood, we celebrate the joy and the contributions of our LGBTQ+ staff, brands, creators, and individuals who work to provide safe and healthy spaces for their communities to thrive. This Pride – and every month of the year – we’re highlighting just a few of our favorite LGBTQ+ friendly brands. From gender-inclusive swimwear to refreshing CBD-infused drinks, these brands are here to help you have the epic summer you deserve while celebrating love and self-expression.
Ready for plant-based comfort food with a backstory that
will warm your heart? “Sauce Boss” and CEO Kailey Gilchrist started
NONA Vegan to honor her late mother. They both
enjoyed nourishing people with delicious vegan food and loved how specific
aromas can take you back in time to cherished memories. Paying tribute to
family traditions passed on to generations of women, there is love and passion
in every single bite of NONA Vegan foods. Whether you’re a tangy alfredo person
or more of a hearty Bolognese with vegan beef type of human, NONA Vegan’s
flavors will make you feel at home.

From roasted coffee
and gluten-free baked goods to hand-crafted chocolates and refreshing acai
bowls, Barbara Jeanine and Kathy Hansen have
been satisfying San Diego’s taste buds since 2011. Industrial Grind Coffee -- once located in Hillcrest, San Diego’s historic LGBTQ+ neighborhood -- is now serving up smiles and good coffee to sunny Tierrasanta. Stop by on a
rainy morning for a classic Au Lait or creamy lavender latte. If you’re not
local, head over to their website and order a pound of their signature beans
(may we suggest the smooth and earthy Papua New Guinea blend?) or a delicious
baking mix to make magic at home.
