It was pulled pork and chicken for a cause in Bethesda on Monday.

Bethesda Cares, the local homeless advocacy nonprofit, and Curley’s Q, a popular BBQ food truck, served more than 35 meals to local homeless men and women at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church on Old Georgetown Road.

“To get out here and see the smiles, it’s worth more than anything you can donate,” said David Cornblatt, owner of Curley’s Q.

The event came about after an August fundraiser at Rock Spring Park Market, a farmers market and food truck stop in North Bethesda. At that fundraiser Bethesda Cares received more than 700 donations of cash, food and clothing to benefit the local homeless population.

After the fundraiser, Cornblatt offered to feed each person Bethesda Cares could bring to his truck, hence today’s meals.

Bethesda Cares is located at 7728 Woodmont Ave., in Bethesda. The nonprofit manages a meal program where it offers meals to homeless and low-income residents throughout the year at four Bethesda churches. Curley’s Q recently started serving food at Hank Dietle’s Tavern on Rockville Pike and also serves food in different parts of Montgomery County.
