Baptist Convention of New York Disaster Relief Truck
Disaster relief units are owned and staffed by Southern Baptist churches, regional Baptist associations, and state Baptist conventions. Volunteer teams respond to disasters within their own state and work cooperatively with other states in larger emergencies. Teams also work overseas when Baptist Global Response requests help.
The first Southern Baptist Disaster Relief response took place in 1967 when a small group of Texas volunteers helped victims of Hurricane Beulah by serving hot food cooked on small "buddy burners."
Forty years later, in 2008, Southern Baptist volunteers prepared almost 8 million meals. All assistance is provided to individuals and communities free of charge.

A Feeding Unit capable of serving 10,000-15,000 meals a day is located at the State Office of the BCNY.
