COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.-More than 200 volunteers will make sure Hurricane Sandy victims in Haiti are not forgotten.
Hope for Haiti and Meal of Hope are teaming up to pack up more than 75,000 meals to send to Haiti.
The storm damaged crops, destroyed homes and swept away livestock. Haitian officials have even indicated a post-Sandy food crisis is possible.
"I think a lot of people don't know how hard Haiti was hit from Sandy and so we're still actually recovering, specifically in the south where Hope for Haiti is primarily based. So this food today is actually getting packed because we have a huge food crisis in the south of Haiti," said Hope for Haiti President and CEO Tiffany Kuehner.
The meals consist of rice, beans, and nutrients.
Monetary donations will also be accepted to help with the cost of shipping the meals to Haiti.
