Dave Grohl helps feed the homeless with little fanfare

Words by Tess Becker

Celebs want to make a difference in the world, too – sometimes with little to no spotlight on them. This is one of those times. 

Foo Fighters frontman and rock legend Dave Grohl was spotted helping cook food for the less fortunate at an LA shelter.

Bringing his own smoker, and meat, and handling all expenses Grohl spent 24 hours cooking meat for the Hope the Mission.

The US-based nonprofit has a mission to prevent, reduce and eliminate poverty, hunger and homelessness. They do this by offering immediate assistance and long-term solutions – from food to housing.

“He arrived around 3 in the afternoon, and then he was in our kitchen,” Mission Director of Development, Grace Ancheta, told Today. “He was prepping the meat, he was cutting it up and he was there until he put it in the smoker.”

Grohl ended up helping make 450 dinners to support the homeless population in the area. 

“He wanted no glory for it,” Ancheta said. “He was like, ‘I just want to do this for you guys and give back in that way.’”
