It's been a nationwide journey, but today, volunteers from Stubb's Barbeque were at the Star of Hope Mission in Houston passing out meals to the homeless. They've traveled thousands of miles over the past few months, passing out food in cities such as Atlanta, Washington and Seattle. Founder CB "Stubb" Stubblefield's grandson says he's working to keep his grandfather's vision alive.

Rocky Stubblefield said, "My granddaddy used to always say, 'I was born hungry, I want to feed the world.' In his restaurants, he would give away more food than he actually sold. So we are continuing his tradition to help feed the homeless."

So far, Stubbs volunteers have traveled 10,000 miles using a mobile kitchen, giving out 1,600 pounds of barbecue.
