Happy Veterans Day and thanks again for your support of Cooking with the Troops

300x250

The idea for Cooking With the Troops grew out of a joint event between Bob Miller and C. Blake Powers. Bob Miller began doing barbecues at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in 2005, and Blake Powers began doing food events as a result of his first embed in Iraq in 2007, working through the charity Soldiers’ Angels. Bob suggested doing a joint event at Malogne House at Walter Reed, with Bob and his volunteers doing a barbecue and to be followed by a dessert bar afterwards.

This event proved to be very successful, and the two realized that they could do much more by working together. They incorporated Cooking with the Troops in April 2010 to not only do food events, but to add in three new program areas. They applied for 501(c)(3) status in May, and received that status in June 2010. Between July and December 2010, Cooking with the Troops was able to serve nearly 1,000 people even as it began fundraising and related efforts.

While the primary focus is on the wounded, injured, and ill and associated caregivers, operations are intended to cover the full range of those who serve, their families, and those who provide medical and related care.

Cooking with the Troops is a 501(c)(3) charity that supports U.S. and Allied troops, their families, and caregivers worldwide. Our mission is to provide comfort, nutrition, and hope through four major programs.
