Hurricane Harvey has come and gone, but has left much devastation in its path that put many families living in shelters as their houses took on water, forcing them from their homes. Well, for me, I was a lucky one that made it out with no property damage. However, we have thousands upon thousands of folks displaced and could use a delicious plate of food. My friends and I have partnered with some local resources, and have begun putting our plan into action, which includes an 18ft mobile BBQ smoker! We make the BBQ, we deliver BBQ, we serve the BBQ, and we bring that Texas spirit to the shelters & responders that we serve. Well known Texas Troubador, Matt Harlan will perform his classic Americana songs & stories while we serve. Texas strong, America strong!
Our plan is to raise funds that will allow us the ability to purchase all of the supplies that we will need. We will be doing our first locations on Saturday, Sept 9th, with a hopes of feeding 3-4 shelters in that day and feeding approximately 1000 people that day. Our goal is to raise enough money to cover that event, which we estimate at about $500 for each shelter to cover meals for 250 people. 100% of our donations will be utilized for the efforts. Locations are still TBD. We are working with local resources such as the Katy Fire Department to assist us in key locations we can serve. We will have announcements on locations by midweek prior to Friday, Sept 8. The more money we raise, the more shelters we can add, and also plan on future dates. We will take the trailer where they need us, whether in Houston & Katy, or down to Victoria & Rockport. But for additional dates to get added, we need every donation we can get.

Any amount you can give helps. This is a grass roots effort that started merely as a way for a few friends hoping to get $500 to feed people. We are currently at just over 2.5K, and hope to see that number grow.
