SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The Giving Bak Foundation, a Shreveport nonprofit, partners with churches in areas impacted by severe weather to provide communities with hot meals.

The group sent crews out to Mayfield, Ky. on the night of Sunday, Dec. 12.

Bryan Ropollo, co-founder of The Giving Bak Foundation, said it’s their mission to help those in need.

“After someone lost everything that they have it’s just heartbreaking,” he said.

His organization consists of volunteers who used to compete in barbeque competitions.

“So we served 1,500 meals on Monday, and 3,500 on Tuesday. And today will be about 5,000 meals,” he said.

Ropollo said their main goal is to spread the gospel.

“We can feed them and share a story with us, we share their story and give them a hug if they want a hug,” he said.

The organization is volunteer-based, and they say donations are needed. If you would like to donate or find out more about the organization, click here.
