Operation BBQ Relief:
6 Millionth Meal Celebration
Tuesday, June 16, 2020
Message from CEO
Operation BBQ Relief has reflected on our mission during the past few weeks and how we can continue to embody the values that are important to the organization.
Operation BBQ Relief provides comfort to those in need by connecting, inspiring, serving, and educating in communities far and wide.
Operation BBQ Relief is absolutely committed to pursuing our charitable mission guided by the principles of equality, justice, and togetherness. We believe that together we can do great things.
Operation BBQ Relief believes that service to others is LOVE and there is no place in our home for anything other than LOVE.
Operation BBQ Relief recently celebrated our 6 millionth meal since we began in 2011. Chef Aaron May from The Shelby and I presented the 6 millionth meal to Aleksandr Motchenko, Senior Respiratory Care Practitioner at the Harbor UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. It was truly inspiring to see so many heroes serving on the frontlines who expressed gratitude for the work Operation BBQ Relief continues to do each day. I also met with restaurant employees at the Shelby and they shared how important our new program Operation Restaurant Relief was for their livelihood and how it has inspired them to commit to giving back to the community.
We look forward to celebrating our 7 millionth meal in Pennsylvania this week. We are grateful for all the hard work of our staff, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters during this challenging time for our country.
