HILLCREST— The local food community recently lost Joel Mendenhall, one of the ranchers behind Homegrown Meats. To honor his passing, Whole Foods Market Hillcrest is hosting a barbecue this Saturday, October 5 and serving Homegrown's grass-fed beef burger plates for $5; all proceeds go to a scholarship fund set up to support his family, to be matched by the market.
