‘Thrill of the Grill BBQ’, proceeds benefit local children

EUREKA- To help feed local children, Food for People along with the North Coast Co-op hosted the 9th Annual Thrill of the Grill BBQ.
Attendees enjoyed the sunshine, music, and the juicy burgers. All the proceeds from the event will go to support Food for People’s Child Nutrition Programs, which include Backpacks for Kids, Children’s Summer Lunch Program, and After School Snack Program.
"It’s just a great example of the community spirit in Humboldt County, and the generosity in this community... I just want to say thank you to everybody who supports Food for People and recognizes the need in this community to work towards a healthier community,” said Harriet Pecot of Food for People.
