JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 storm, people in the area are still calling for food and supplies.
The owner of the Brazilian food truck answers the call by volunteering her team to feed the panhandle.
Heloisa Olivera, the owner of Delish Kebabs, said she would like to help, as a reminder that goodwill towards all people is still at the heart of the Floridians.
“We are very blessed here. We are very grateful for everything the US has offered us. We feel that we want to give something back to the community. We are planning to feed 500 people,” Olivera told News4Jax on Thursday. “We will have 10 people with us. We will give away free water, food for everyone.”
