It's been two weeks since the storm made landfall.

The mobile feeding unit is an operation the Red Cross launches after a disaster devastates a community.

Volunteers drove throughout the Red Springs area to put hot food in the hands of those who need it most.

Organizers told ABC11 they are capable of feeding 25,000 people a day throughout the Carolinas, but each truck can provide 200 meals.

Communities are identified through damage assessment.
