TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Tallahassee Salvation Army is headed to Louisiana to help feed those impacted by Hurricane Delta.

For two weeks, volunteers will assist in feeding and caring for those affected by Hurricane Delta with a special canteen capable of serving up to 1,500 meals three times a day.

Local volunteers just returned from Lake Charles, Louisiana two weeks ago as they recovered from Hurricane Laura.

The Salvation Army of Gadsden and Wakulla Counties are also part of this response team.

"We're ready to serve," said Captain Stephan Wildish with the Salvation Army. "We're glad that this unit is being used for disaster work for those being affected by the Hurricane in Louisiana. We're here to serve beverage, food, but also the Salvation Army is here to support in emotional and spiritual needs as well."

Every year, each responder is equipped with disaster training for times such as these.
