Food for People and the Eureka North Coast Co-op teamed up for the 9th annual Thrill of the Grill BBQ Benefit on Friday, June 13 from 11:30 AM to 2 pm at the Eureka Co-op parking lot located on 4th and B Streets. The North Coast Co-op generously donates and prepares all food items with the help of donations from their distributors including Humboldt Grassfed Beef, Tofu Shop, Earl’s Organic Produce and more. This annual benefit is bargain-priced ($5!) and includes choice of Humboldt Grassfed Beef hamburger or Tofu Shop tofu burger plus organic green salad, chips, and choice of drink. Jazzy sounds were provided by local band Dogbone. All proceeds from this event will support Food for People’s Child Nutrition Programs, which include Backpacks for Kids, Children’s Summer Lunch Program, and the After School Snack Program, working to ensure that every child, every day, has enough to eat in Humboldt County.



Letter Carriers Food Drive

Every year since 1992 on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers throughout the country perform double-duty by picking up nonperishable food donations left for their food drive and deliver them to their local food bank or pantry while still delivering mail. This nationwide effort has resulted in the delivery of more than one billion pounds of food to community food banks and pantries since its first year. Your donations are vital in Humboldt County in order to keep our pantry shelves stocked.


CANstruction® is a creative food drive and opportunity to design and build sculptures using non-perishable food items.
