Feeding the Firefighters

Apr 27, 2024 | Days of Giving

Starting on April 27, 2024, and into the first few weeks of May, our area coordinators and supporting volunteers successfully carried out our 2nd Annual “Feeding the Firefighters” initiative held in honor of International Firefighters’ Day on May 4. Throughout this initiative, Operation BBQ Relief fed 1,776 firefighters at 121 locations in 22 cities across 13 states! This was a significant increase from last year when we provided meals at 46 individual firehouses in 15 cities across nine states. We were honored to serve those who serve us.

To every firefighter: Thank you for your bravery and the sacrifices you make to keep us safe.

To our volunteers: Thanks so much for your hard work providing “The One Hot Meal That Matters” to our brave heroes in uniform! We couldn’t have done it without you!
