Logistics is moving all the equipment and supplies: before, during and after and keeps it running.
Logistics is committed to the safe transportation, operation and maintenance of the disaster relief equipment. Logistics provides the infrastructure and is the glue that holds other ministries together in response to a disaster dedicated in showing the love of Christ while helping others.
Every ministry area has to work together to be able to provided the best relief effort possible, but only one ministry plays a part in every ministry. Logistics help in the staging and set-up of everything that a disaster relief team would need for a call out. Logistics begins far in advance of a natural disaster. From doing regular maintenance on all FLDR equipment, helping keep the Lake Yale and Marianna warehouse ready for a response, to getting equipment to and from a disaster area.
The Florida Baptist Disaster Relief have two mobile feeding units ready to make a difference. Feeding Unit 001 is a 53′ semi trailer with five commercial convection ovens and three tilt skillets. It with its support team allows us to serve 25,000 meals a day. Feeding Unit 002 is a smaller gooseneck trailer which can be more easily maneuvered and has three convection ovens and two tilt skillets. Feeding Unit 002 is set-up to serve 15,000 meals a day. Both units take a logistics, cooking, serving, and sanitation team to work at full capacity.
Mobile kitchens are under the same state and federal food and health regulations as a regular restaurant.
