“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
Since 2004, employees, directors and family members of MHC Culinary Group have joined our partners in “Serving Our Troops” to provide our men and women in uniform an opportunity to enjoy a meal with friends and family.
In 2012, more than 13,000 steak dinners with all the trimmings were served at our RiverCentre location and at multiple locations throughout Kuwait to soldiers and their families simultaneously, connecting each other via live satellite broadcast and Skype. The idea – allow them to share a meal, regardless of the separation, so that the sacrifices they are making for our country may be just a little easier to endure.
In all, Serving Our Troops has served more than 70,000 steak dinners at forward bases all over the world including Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait, as well as pre-deployment bases located throughout the US, completely free of charge. It is a completely volunteer group and all money is raised by volunteers and our vendor partners.
