"I didn't have to think twice. I wanted immediately to help out," Nayyar said. "We just wanted to give back to the community."
A shooter killed three people, including a 6-year-old boy and a 13-year-old-girl, at the Gilroy Garlic Festival late Sunday afternoon.
As Nayyar drove back to Gilroy from his home in Hayward, he notified a friend who posted a call for help on Facebook. Pretty soon about a dozen people were in the kitchen making buffalo wings, pizzas and salads for first responders and victims' families, Nayyar said.
Nayyar said his friends and family were already awake and upset over the deadly shooting, and this gave them something productive to do.
