About 180 meals were handed out to veterans, their families, and community members during the All Veterans Stand Down drive-thru lunch held Saturday at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building. Proceeds will help veterans organizations such as All Veterans Stand Down and American Legion Frank Gallino Post No. 130.
