Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Fires. Floods. Mother Nature can dish out a lot. Blue Rhino will be there to help, through our partnership with Operation BBQ Relief.
Blue Rhino is a proud sponsor of Operation BBQ Relief (OBR), a charity of competition chefs who serve grilled food and hope in disaster areas.
Founded in 2011 in the wake of the devastating tornado in Joplin, Mo., OBR has since served over a million meals while deployed during dozens of disasters across the country. The charity is run entirely by volunteers.
In 2017, CNN recognized OBR and its founder as one of its top 10 Heroes for 2017. Members of the charity’s leadership team have also appeared on TV shows such as Food Network’s “Chopped” to display their talents and promote OBR.
Blue Rhino supplies Operation BBQ Relief with propane as well as select grills and accessories for cooking and heating during deployments and fundraisers.
