Dave Grohl warmed our hearts last week when we saw that he dedicated himself to serving food to those impacted by severe storms in Los Angeles. Turns out his work isn’t done and he will be doing the same with Feed The Streets LA. The organization posted on their Instagram today to make the announcement of a bit of a partnership. Their post read, “We’ve been trying to figure out ways to keep up with our activations and continue to put out 3,500 meals a month. It’s not an easy task, especially when several communities experiencing food insecurity rely on us for a decent meal five times a week. On one of those wet and cold rainy days we received a text from none other than Dave Grohl (code name: Dolce & Gabana)—he said he heard about what we were doing and wanted to help out. We threw him into an upcoming activation. He spent 18 hours straight smoking brisket, ribs and pork—with a cooking crew. They stayed up all night and into the sunrise. The next day Dolce and his team, exhausted and sleep deprived—packed up the food and drove it to MacArthur Park. All they had to do was drop it off and leave, however they decided to stay and work the line—serve the BBQ with our crew until everyone at the park was fed. If that ain’t a hero we don’t know wtf is. Stay tuned, D & G will be back on the blocks to serve Yucca and Skid Row soon!”
For those that don’t know, Skid Row is known for having one of the largest homeless populations in the United States. Grohl is out there doing important work, but he is also bringing awareness to organizations who do this everyday. To donate to Feed the Streets head here!
