Ribstock continues the theme of business, community, and BBQ, which is truly what this event is all about. There have been so many people within the community and Millard Business Association that have contributed to this event, and every year it continues to grow. More children, families, seniors, and veterans than ever before are experiencing food insecurity. Funds raised from Ribstock will enable the Food Bank to provide critical meals to families facing hunger in Nebraska and western Iowa. Ribstock has also generated thousands of dollars for Project Wee Care and are adding the Western Douglas County Food Basket program this year. Learn more at Ribstockbbq.com.
