Stan Hays, CEO and Founder of Operation BBQ Relief, shared that the organization could distribute between 10,000 to 15,000 meals daily during their time in Texas.

For the first few days, their efforts will focus on feeding first responders and search and rescue teams, ensuring those on the front lines are well-nourished as they aid affected communities.

"Until we start getting it really known in the community that we are there," Hays said. "We're working with the state of Texas and emergency management to ensure that where we're going is also where they see the biggest need."

Since its inception in 2011, Operation BBQ Relief has served over 11 million meals across 36 states and the Bahamas.

"At the end of the day there is something very fulfilling about the reaction you see and you feel from somebody that you know can never repay you for that act of kindness," Hays said.
