    September 2020 - Hurricane Laura Update

    Message from CEO

    In 15 days, Operation BBQ Relief has provided 293,231 hot meals with the support from over 200 volunteers from 32 states. While the number of meals served are extraordinarily high, the magnitude of gratitude is even higher. I had the chance to deliver meals into the community where homes are without roofs, water is barely trickling from faucets, and power may take many more weeks before it is restored. Families are still trying to survive as they have nowhere to go. The smiles, hugs, and tears were heartfelt signs of gratitude as we handed hot meals to our new friends. The meals provided much needed comfort, hope, and friendship as so many have felt forgotten.
    I want to personally thank you, our staff, and volunteers who help us provide that one hot meal that matters. Our ability to deploy with our command center and thousands of pounds of food and equipment would not be possible without your support.
    I invite you all to join us on this deployment or a future deployment as your life will change forever.
    Operation BBQ Relief was featured on
    Business Insider. Please take time to watch our team in action on this current deployment and hear from Greg Lovell from North Carolina. Greg received a meal from us as he was recovering from Hurricane Florence. He drove 16 hours to pay it forward and serve families affected by Hurricane Laura.
    Greg’s story and the numerous other stories of gratitude provide the fuel that continues to push Operation BBQ Relief in our efforts to share the healing power of BBQ.

    Much respect,

    “Semper Gumbi” Or Always Flexible

    Jarrid "Jay" Collins, Chief Programs Officer

    I learned a term many years ago from what I’ll nicely call a well-seasoned Master Guns in the Marine Corps. “Semper Gumbi” Or Always Flexible. Always Have a PACE plan. (for those of you not well-versed in the militaries love of the acronym , it means Primary, Alternate, Contingency, Emergency). As a retired Green Beret, I can attest that in the military, we plan, we train tirelessly and we prepare to execute the mission flawlessly – yet - quite often our best developed plans rarely survive first contact. But, we’ve got to Stay in the fight – so don’t fall in love with your plan.

    Being flexible has many benefits; we constantly meet psychological challenges. Some succumb, and feel hopeless, disempowered, give up. That’s not us; OBR rises up, meets the challenges, takes the punch and learns something from it. You see, being adaptable and flexible means not feeling hopeless and helpless in the face of change.
