OBR’s Always Serving Project
You may have been asking yourself, “How can I participate more with OBR?” outside of a disaster, such as a hurricane, tornado, or wildfire. The Breaking Bread Tour, part of the Always Serving Project, may be just what you’re looking for.
We invite you to join our movement, which begins on April 28. Together, we will cycle, hand cycle and run across America to bring awareness to hunger in our communities. We will connect, inspire and serve in 8 communities across the U.S., aiming to break bread with as many people as possible throughout the tour. We plan to provide hot BBQ meals to 10,000 people per community. We will start our trek in Los Angeles, CA, and end in Tampa, FL, on June 16, at the 2019 DoD Warrior Games where we will support athletes and families throughout the games.
Why are we doing this? Face facts, many things divide people today. Hunger is an issue in every state and many children go to school everyday without breakfast or lunch. OBR believes in bringing people together by connecting, inspiring and serving communities through the Healing Power of BBQ.
While dates may change slightly, here is the schedule.
April 28th – Los Angeles, CA
May 5th-6th – Phoenix, Arizona
May 13th – El Paso, Texas
May 20th – San Antonio, Texas
May 25-26th – Houston, Texas
June 2nd – Hammond, Louisiana
June 9th – Panama City Beach, Florida
June 20th – Tampa Bay, Florida
June 21-30th – DoD Warrior Games (Tampa, Florida)
OBR has decided to actively pursue solutions to end hunger once and for all by providing a hot BBQ meal to those in need, year round.
