Jun 1, 2019 | Deployments

On the evening of May 28, 2019, a mile-wide EF4 tornado ripped through Douglas and Leavenworth counties in Kansas with winds up to 170 miles per hour. Numerous homes were damaged or destroyed and 18 people were injured, with Linwood being the hardest hit. Operation BBQ Relief volunteers deployed to connect, inspire, serve, and feed those impacted so that they would not have to worry about where their next meal would come from.
