Food brings people together and lets them know how much you care. Breaking Bread with Heroes is an opportunity for us to tell our nation’s defenders how grateful we are for their service while they bond over a delicious meal.

Thanksgiving ServiceRobert began his cooking career while serving in the Royal Navy and saw firsthand the connections that form when sitting down to break bread together. Since the Foundation’s inception, food has always been an important part of our programs. Whether teaching a cooking class to our nation’s heroes home & abroad or sponsoring a meal for veterans, Robert brings his passions for food to the forefront of our work.

Breaking Bread With Heroes is designed to bring military and first responder communities together. We are preparing or sponsoring meals to be served at veteran homes, military bases, and firehouses all year long.
