Fun times were had at this year's 11th annual Thrill of the Grill — a Food for People BBQ and benefit fundraiser. The Co-op helped raise $2,086.50, with all proceeds from this event supporting Food for People’s Child Nutrition Programs. For $5 dollars, attendees had a choice of grassfed beef or non-meat burger, plus a green salad, chips and a drink all while listening to the jazzy sounds of the local band, Dogbone.
North Coast Co-op and Food for People would like to thank our generous donors: Humboldt Grassfed Beef, Tofu Shop, Field Roast, Hilary’s Eat Well, Canyon Bakehouse, Oroweat, Franz, Earl’s Organic Produce, Annie’s Naturals, Bubbies, Sir Kensington's, Organic Valley, Mike Hudson Distributing, Kettle Brand Chips, Lundberg Chips, Mary’s Gone Crackers, Hubert’s Lemonade, Honest Tea, Obi Probiotic Soda, Teas’ Tea and Blue Sky Soda.
