SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

As most people are moving away from Hurricane Matthew, one Northwest Louisiana group is going directly toward the storm to lend a helping hand.

The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana says they will be heading to Orlando to provide more than 70,000 meals to their local food bank.

So far, evacuations have been ordered for almost 2 million people in the path of the hurricane, as it threatens to be one of the most dangerous storms in recent history.

The group, who provides more than 9 million pounds of food annually, says they will be sending five 53 feet trailer loads of food to be of use to residents in the Orlando area.

Each of the trucks will be loaded with individually pre-packaged meals also known as Meals Ready to Eat.

The trucks will head to Orlando on Friday, October 7, from the Disaster Warehouse in Shreveport.
