Heather Avery (pictured above), Managing Partner with Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine at GardenWalk in Anaheim, recently completed a trip to the Middle East as a volunteer with Operation Feeding Freedom VII, an annual mission sponsored by OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC. The Hawaiian native, and long time resident of Orange County, joined 28 other OSI volunteers from around the country who brought United States and coalition soldiers a taste of home from the Company’s participating restaurants – Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, and Roy’s.
The Operation Feeding Freedom VII mission served 37,000 service men and women approximately 55,000 pounds of food in both Afghanistan and Turkey. The menu featured signature dishes such as the Outback Bloomin’ Onion, Bonefish Bang Bang Shrimp, and Fleming’s Calamari. Also served were thick and juicy steaks, potatoes, Carrabba’s signature pastas, Bonefish Longfin Tilapia with Lobster Thermidor Sauce and Roy’s signature Beef Short Ribs.
