Operation BBQ Relief was founded in May 2011 in response to a need for relief efforts in tornado-stricken Joplin, Missouri, a community of about 50,000 residents. Volunteer BBQ teams from all over the country, (like DRJ Catering), answer the need to help feed displaced families, police, fire, National Guard and emergency personnel whenever disasters strike. These relief efforts have served hundreds of thousands of meals that has been delivered to shelters, hospitals, senior living communities and the Humane Society. Volunteers loaded food into vehicles and delivered directly to families in the impacted areas.
All of this is made possible by all who contributed food and supplies and funding from across the country. Operation BBQ Relief continues to respond to natural disasters and other situations to help feed displaced residents and emergency personnel. DRJ Catering is proud to be an active team member and will continue to support whenever we are called upon.
Operation BBQ Relief strives to provide compassion, and offer hope and friendship to those whose lives have been affected by disasters across the United States. We leverage our expertise in cooking and catering barbecue meals with our ability to quickly mobilize our teams into any area where disaster disrupts and tears apart the lives of Americans.
We value honesty, compassion, friendship, hard work and respect for others and for resources with which we are provided. Decisions and actions of Operation BBQ Relief will always be made and carried out with these values in mind. We want the communities we serve to be able to state without reservation that Operation BBQ Relief upheld these values while making a positive impact in the lives of their citizens.
