Operation BBQ Relief: Feeding Hearts & Communities
Moore’s Marinades & Sauces has partnered with Operation BBQ Relief in an effort to raise awareness about the cause and to help inform communities across the nation of the impact it has on the lives of those affected by natural disasters. We pledged to donate $0.10 for every bottled purchased (up to $10,000) during July and August, and we reached our goal and donated the full amount! The $10,000 directly supported Operation BBQ Relief’s deployment to the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area that was severely affected by recent, tragic flooding.
Made up of more than 4,000 volunteers, BBQ enthusiasts and competition BBQ teams, Operation BBQ Relief strives to serve hot meals, provide compassion and offer hope to those whose lives have been affected by natural disasters across the USA.
The nonprofit was founded in May 2011 in response to a need for relief efforts in the tornado-stricken Joplin, Missouri. Volunteers of competition BBQ teams from eight states gathered to help feed displaced families, police, fire, National Guard and emergency personnel. Now celebrating its fifth anniversary, Operation BBQ Relief has served more than 1,000,000 meals in 19 states. Their expertise in cooking and catering BBQ meals as well as their ability to mobilize allows the organization to quickly deploy teams wherever disaster occurs.
