WEST (April 19, 2013)—H-E-B set up its Eddie Garcia H-E-B Mobile Kitchen Friday in West and said its volunteers will remain there as long as needed.
The volunteers served breakfast to about 300 people Friday morning, most of them first responders.
Lunch will be available from noon until 2 p.m. and dinner will be served from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The volunteers will serve three hot meals daily.
The 45-foot trailer can prepare about 2,500 meals per hour.
The urban rescue Texas Task Force Teams 1 and 2 continue to search through the rubble left by the powerful explosion Wednesday night at the town’s fertilizer plant.
Authorities said 12 bodies have been recovered from the blast site and sources say other bodies may still remain in the rubble of homes and buildings destroyed by the blast.
