FORT WORTH (KRLD 1080)- Fort Worth nonprofit Rapid Hope Disaster Relief ​is bound for Panama City, Florida to help disaster victims through a home cooked meal.

About eight volunteers will make the 14 hour trip with an industrial food truck. They pride themselves on their home-style specialties.

"We make spaghetti, we make meatloaf, we make roast and potatoes," says the nonprofit's owner Debbie Day. "We even prepared an entire Thanksgiving dinner while helping after Hurricane Sandy."

Rapid Hope Disaster Relief has helped communities since 2011.

"We go with the intention of helping and loving on people, and showing them that others really care about them," says Day. "And we end up coming back more blessed than they could ever know."

Volunteers plan to stay in Florida for as long as their grocery money holds out, and as long as they have volunteers to cook the meals.

The Rapid Hope Disaster Relief is run completely by volunteers, and every dollar donated goes toward their efforts in disaster relief. They encourage fellow North Texans to help by visiting their website.
