Dave Grohl cooks for the homeless: The nicest guy in rock strikes again

Dave Grohl’s philanthropic spirit knows no bounds, as evidenced by his recent 16-hour cooking marathon for the homeless at a Los Angeles shelter.

If there’s one thing Dave Grohl knows how to do, it’s rock. But the Foo Fighters frontman also knows how to give back. Last week, Grohl spent a grueling 16 hours cooking up a storm for the homeless at the Hope of the Valley rescue shelter in Los Angeles.

According to sources, Grohl whipped up some seriously mouth-watering BBQ, including succulent ribs, juicy pork butt, flavorful brisket, and classic sides like cabbage, coleslaw, and beans. And he didn’t stop there – Grohl even slept in the car park while the meat cooked to ensure that everyone got a hot and tasty meal.

Grohl’s altruistic efforts couldn’t have come at a better time. Southern California was bracing itself for major storms, and the homeless population was particularly vulnerable. But Grohl, always the gentleman, didn’t hesitate to roll up his sleeves and get to work.

The CEO of Hope of the Valley, Rowan Vansleve, was quick to praise Grohl’s good deeds on Instagram. “Nothing but love and respect for Dave,” he wrote. “Not only did he wish us luck, but he cooked for hundreds of people who live in our shelters in the middle of one of the worst storms. And in the middle of our 350 mile run to end homelessness, we got the coolest video ever from Dave Grohl, of the Foo Fighters.”

With his latest act of kindness, Grohl is unlikely to lose his well-earned reputation as ‘The Nicest Guy In Rock’ any time soon. From cooking for the homeless to supporting music education programs, Grohl has always used his platform for good. And for that, we can’t help but give him a standing ovation.
