The 2018 Big BBQ Bash is set for Friday, June 22 – Saturday, June 23 at Founder’s Square in historic downtown Maryville, TN, located in the scenic foothills of the Smoky Mountains. The event is an amateur barbecue cook-off and fundraiser for the Helen Ross McNabb Center, created by the Leadership Blount Class of 2007. Volunteers will assist with registration, refreshments, event set-up/clean-up and monitoring event parking. For additional information, please visit mcnabbcenter.org/volunteer.
The Big BBQ Bash is a Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) sanctioned competition. KCBS sanctions barbecue and grilling competitions across the U.S. and promotes barbecue as America's cuisine. In addition, KCBS has an extensive Certified Barbecue Judging program. Categories include pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken, “anything butt,” and a special Wampler’s Farm Sausage category. Prize money totaling $10,000 will be awarded including a trophy and, of course, bragging rights for the top three teams in each category.

Mobile Meals delivers food and hope to over 900 homebound seniors a day in Knox County. We are seeking to improve the quality and nutritional value of our meals through a partnership with Beardsley Community Farm, conveniently next door to the kitchen.
Tour CAC Beardsley Community Farm and harvest local, organic fruits and veggies.
Take your morning harvest next door to the Mobile Meals kitchen and help us wash, chop, and turn the produce into healthy meal options for our seniors.
The food prepared will be hand delivered to older adults in Knox County who live alone, cannot cook for themselves, and have no one to cook for them. Our seniors deserve nutritious meals made with local, healthy ingredients. You can help make that possible.
Sing up for your volunteer shift below. Email email@example.com for more information.
