People's Kitchen serving up free food at parks in Grover Beach

A free lunch program in Grover Beach is still serving the needy on the Central Coast, even though they don't have a permanent facility. Betsy Ehrler, the president of the South County People's Kitchen, said they will bring the meals to the needy in parks around town. Ehrler said she has been in communication with the Grover Beach Police Department, and she said that they are not breaking any laws transporting the food to parks. No one from the Grover Beach Police Department was available to comment on Wednesday. Ehrler said it's not ideal to serve at parks, but this will have to do for now. "The teams voted that they wanted to keep on serving no matter what. We had to find something different to do," said Ehrler. In September, the city denied the People's Kitchen temporary use permit to operate on a dirt lot at Grand Avenue and 16th Street. They had 45 days to find a new location. Ehrler said they are continuing to look for a permanent spot.
