The Camp Operation Drum Stick


Monday, April 20, 2020




HUNTSVILLE, ALA.— In the spirit of coming together in these challenging times, RCP Companies’ Head Chef at The Camp, Chef Ruth Mercado, is preparing over 5,000 ready-to-eat casserole dishes to disperse in Huntsville as a continuation of Operation Drumstick started in Muscle Shoals and made possible by gracious donations from The Muscle Shoals Music Association, Forrest Wood Farms, and Merchants Grocery.  The Camp has identified six distribution centers through partners across Huntsville to safely hand out a meal to anyone who would like to commune together, separately.

“I just wanted to have a way for people in Huntsville to have a meal together, anyone and everyone, together but separate,” Chef Ruth said, “until the next time we can commune in the same place.”

Each package of meals will include four servings of various casserole dishes. GrubSouth will be transporting the prepared meals from The Camp’s kitchen to each distribution center with their approved health code protocols, drivers and resources they already have in place from their food transportation service. Distribution centers and meal preparation are made possible by The Camp, Woody Anderson Ford, Huntsville Country Club, Venue Group, Schoel Engineering, Saint Bartley Primitive Baptist Church, Canadian Bakin, and GrubSouth.
