The Healing Power of BBQ
2011 – 2021

Disaster Response

Our teams and volunteers work around the clock to ensure communities in need receive a hot meal, letting those affected by natural disasters know that they are not forgotten,” said Stan Hays, CEO and Co-Founder. “If you just lost your home, a hot meal can provide comfort and immediate relief in the wake of devastation.”

Armed with a caravan of cooks, mobile pits, kitchens and volunteers, Operation BBQ Relief delivers the healing power of BBQ in times of need, feeding first responders and communities affected by natural disasters along with year-round efforts to fight hunger through The Always Serving Project® and Operation Restaurant Relief™ programs.
