CNN HEROES COLLABORATE TO PROVIDE MEALS FOR FAMILIES
As most of you know, (because we never stop talking about it) Lost Angels Children's Project (LACP) was recognized for it's innovative programming by CNN Heroes in 2017. Within the same cohort of nominated Heroes was Stan Hayes, a Grand Champion pitmaster, who uses his barbecuing skills to feed people in need and the founder of Operation BBQ Relief (OBR).
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic swept the country more and more family restaurants closed their doors and let staff go. OBR jumped into action to ramp up it's restaurant relief efforts to help restaurants rehire laid off staff and increase the production of meals for people affected by national business closures. When OBR caught wind that Lost Angels had switched gears to help struggling families in a similar capacity they reached out to help. Together, them as a supplier of healthy meals and us as a distributor, we're helping more families than ever!
“By leveraging our resources and skills, we can do our small part in helping those in need. The pandemic is isolating and frightening for everyone and we hope that we can ease some of the suffering of our most vulnerable populations.”
– Stan Hays, CEO and Co-Founder
We want to show Stan and everyone over at Operation BBQ Relief an immense amount of respect and gratitude for the absolutely essential work that they're doing. Together OBR and LACP are now providing over 1200 meals every week to Antelope Valley families in need! That's more than triple the amount of meals we were doing on our own! Thanks to OBR we're making sure that no family is going hungry in the AV.
