Dave Grohl cooks 24 hoursto help out at a homeless shelter in Los Angeles. He cooks barbecuess for hundreds of homeless people, proving once again that he is everyone's hero. Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters put down his guitar and left the stage to feed people in need in Los Angeles.
On February 22, the lead singer of the band brought his BBQ smokers and food to the Hope The Mission. This was done because LA was about to get hit by a big snow storm.

Dave Grohl Cooks 24 Hours For Homeless People

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl barbecues for hours to feed people at LA homeless shelter

On February 22, Grace Ancheta, director of development at Hope the Mission, said that Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl had brisket, pork butt, ribs, and other foods sent to the Trebek Center in Northridge, California. Ancheta says:
He arrived around 3 in the afternoon, and then he was in our kitchen. He was prepping the meat, he was cutting it up and he was there until he put it in the smoker.- Grace Ancheta
The meat didn't go into the smoker until midnight that night because he's like, 'Oh, it has to season and it has to do this.He's definitely a craftsman when it comes to that, and then he spent the night.- Grace Ancheta
Ancheta says Grohl and his fellow barbecuers took turns smoking the meat overnight, even though a big winter storm moved through Southern California and dumped hail and rain on the shelter that night. The meat was ready around 3 p.m. on Feb. 23, or about a day after Grohl started cooking.
Ancheta says that dinner is served at the shelters run by Hope the Mission around 6 p.m., so Grohl was working toward that time so that the meals could be served as soon as they were ready. Ancheta says;
He actually served to our guests, he came out and was very gracious and took pictures with the people that recognized him. He wanted no glory for it, he was like, 'I just want to do this for you guys and give back in that way.'- Grace Ancheta
Ancheta says that Grohl told the staff at Hope the Mission that he finds it relaxing to get into the barbecue pit after a show. Ancheta says:
Whenever he comes off of work or anything else, that’s what he wants to do. He wants to cook for people. And by the wa, it was amazing. It’s the best barbecue we’ve had.- Grace Ancheta
CEO Ken Craft and president and CFO Rowan Vansleve of Hope the Mission are running 350 miles across the desert from the Las Vegas Strip back to Los Angeles to raise money for the mission's latest campaign. Grohl's visit comes at the same time. Vansleve put up a video Grohl sent to support the "All in for Housing" campaign.
Keep it up, we’ve been out here all night cooking. You got to get back here soon, because we’re all in.- Dave Grohl
He also made a video of the non-founder profit's and CEO, Ken Craft, and president and CFO, Rowan Vansleve, running 350 miles from Las Vegas to Los Angeles to raise money for three family shelters.
Grohl wrote that he got the idea for his catering business, Backbeat BBQ, from his love of cooking for a crowd.

Conclusion

Dave Grohl cooks 24 hours for food for 500 homeless people in Los Angeles over the weekend, solidifying his reputation as "The Nicest Guy in Rock." He did this over the course of a 16-hour shift.
Rowan Vansleve, who works for the charity Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission as the Chief Fundraising Officer, posted a video on Instagram of Foo Fighters legend Dave Grohl wishing him luck as Vansleve walks 350 miles from Las Vegas to Los Angeles to raise money for the charity.
Vanseleve said that Dave worked a 24-hour overnight shift cooking food on a grill for homeless people in California who had lost their homes because of the storms.
