TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - For an entire week, Salvation Army said they have been building their response teams and stocking mobile feeding units, in preparation for Hurricane Matthew.

The non-profit said the disaster team in Tallahassee is expected to deploy on Saturday to Daytona Beach. 

Lieutenant Ryan Meo, Corps Officer for the Salvation Army of Tallahassee, said that the anticipated need at this time is for 250,000 meals per day in the affected areas.

Lt. Meo said, “This response will require all the communities in our state to come together and support each other in any way we can.”

All 32 of the organizations kitchens on wheels, have been on standby and stocked for deployment. 18 additional units from other states are also on their way to support the response efforts. 

“We are praying continuously for our communities and neighbors all along the Atlantic coastline, and we will be there as long as we’re needed,” Lt. Meo said.
