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 the official propane exchange of Operation BBQ Relief, 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., Operation BBQ Relief has since served millions of meals while deployed during dozens of disasters across the country.
In 2017, CNN recognized OBR and its founder as one of its top 10 Heroes. 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 for cooking and heating during deployments and fundraisers. And now, our parent company Ferrellgas supplies propane in larger tanks as the charity's official propane.
