Tens of thousands of American soldiers stationed overseas got a taste of home last week thanks to “Operation Feeding Freedom.”
Outback steakhouse and its restaurant partners sent 29 volunteers to five bases in Afghanistan and Turkey.
The mission lasted 16 days and with 55,000 pounds of food, the team was able to feed 40,000 soldiers.
Last week's trip marks the seventh time "Operation Feeding Freedom" has fed our troops in the Middle East. So far, they've cooked up close to 140,000 meals.
