Dave Grohl, the renowned musician from Foo Fighters, dedicated a day off from his Australia tour to support the homeless community in Melbourne.

Collaborating with The Big Umbrella Foundation, he organized a grand American-style BBQ, complete with all the classic trimmings. Despite having a flight to Sydney soon after, Grohl devoted his time to preparing and serving a delicious meal for those in need.

The event took place on December 8, with Grohl and his team dedicating 18 hours to meticulously prepare and smoke 120kg of pork ribs, pork butt, and beef brisket. They delivered this feast to MG’s kitchen, named after Michael Gudinski, a friend and mentor.

Alongside Frontier touring’s big-hearted crew, they set up at MG’s kitchen early in the morning, preparing soft potato rolls loaded with pulled pork, coleslaw, and pickles, alongside smoked pork ribs and beef brisket.

At Federation Square, a record number of people waited in 36°C heat for this eagerly anticipated meal. The community was buzzing with excitement, unaware of the special guests who would serve them. Grohl, along with Nick and Nat, worked tirelessly in the heat for over two hours, serving 430 meals.

They interacted with the people, posing for photos, signing t-shirts and cardboard plates, all while maintaining their humble demeanor.

Grohl’s commitment to helping the homeless isn’t new. In March, he volunteered at Hope Of The Valley’s BBQ in Los Angeles, cooking and serving 450 people over 18 hours, and similarly supported Feed The Streets LA. These acts of kindness highlight Grohl’s genuine care for people in need and his willingness to use his platform to make a positive impact in the community.
