Mission Zero Hundred Hours

Mission Zero Hundred Hours is a 501(c)3 non profit focused on Veteran suicide prevention and awareness through competitive culinary arts.

We believe competition BBQ can provide a familiar, structured, and mission centric environment to Veterans, that helps struggling vets channel their energies toward healthy goals and finding a new support network through the extended Competition BBQ Family.

Veterans have the opportunity to cook with teams as part of our effort and mission to raise awareness and end Veteran Suicide; by embedding Veterans with BBQ Cook Teams for an immersive BBQ Mission.

Our BBQ Saves Lives program, pairs vets with professional BBQ teams across the country for a BBQ Mission which re-introduces vets to mission, value, team, family, and community.

The process of cooking competition BBQ is very mission centric. Over the course of a BBQ contest, vets get to reconnect with all the goals that make them who they are. Preparation. Task lists. Team. Mission Completion. Contributing. Selflessness. Family.

BBQ contests have a very clearly defined beginning and end, with success criteria and results. You have the adrenaline of competing, and completing tasks. At the end of a contest we hope vets find a new family and support network within the BBQ community bigger and better that the military one they had!
