Un-Official Deployments 2020
Serving people a warm BBQ meal in times of disasters is a powerful way to lift their spirts and instill hope into devastating situations. At United by BBQ that is what we are all about. In our first two “un-official” deployments we spent a week in Lake Charles, LA and fed 6,500 people and then in Elberta, AL another 7,500 people including first responders and the local community. We also participated in a Ponchatoula community event and helped raise over $32,000 for Lt. Donald Walker Burton in his battle with cancer. At the end of October we responded to Hurricane Zita and the aftermath going to Cintronelle, AL and feeding 3,500 – New Orleans 1,200 – the southern Louisiana communities of Golden Meadow – Leeville – Galliano and we also cooked BBQ Chicken for Our Daily Bread Food Bank in Hammond, LA.
These were GREAT efforts by our team and our community as well as very hard work. Upgrading to a production trailered pit will provide 3X the capacity for cooking meals and getting them to the people that need them. These rigs are mobile, quick and easy to set up, economical on wood and propane and is a super-producer of World Class BBQ!
We invite you to be a part of our team with a financial commitment to our Pit and supporting equipment. This will be an investment that will pay back in ways that cannot be measured through the people we will serve in disasters and times of need.
