DOTHAN, AL--In a small, close circle, the three man team gather for a quick prayer before they hit the road.
"We got a call yesterday that we're going to deploy today to New Orleans," said Salvation Army Commanding Officer Major Alan Phillips.
Jim Mooney and his wife are one of the three volunteers set to deploy.
Mooney says this isn't his first time around.
However, it's his first time responding to a water disaster.
"I'm expecting lots of people, we did 650 up in Birmingham but I think this is going to be even more," said Dothan Corps Sergeant Major Jim Mooney.
This isn't the canteen's first time around either.
Dothan crops mobile canteen has been used in other recent disasters.
"This unit was deployed to Tuscaloosa and they were deployed to Birmingham tornados," said Phillips.
The three man crew will head out in the mobile canteen, inside they'll cook and prepare meals to feed those in need.
"We can feed 650 people right now," said Mooney.
Once that food runs out a location on site will provide more food for the group to prepare.
Mooney says he's ready to help.
"It's all worth it when you give somebody a meal and they break down and they start crying and they say why are you doing this, it's really heart warming and i think that's what it's all about."
The crew is set to spend 12 days in Louisiana.
Once this crew comes back in 12 days.
They may need to send a new crew.
If you'd like to volunteer you can give the Salvation Army's office a call to sign up for training.
The Dothan Corps is also in need of monetary donations.
If you'd like to donate, you can stop by the office on South Bell Street in Dothan.
