Lunch Ladies disaster volunteers-NBCvideoFew things offer as much comfort as a home-cooked meal.

A big-hearted restaurant owner known as “Momma” leads a group in Arlington, Washington called the Soup Ladies. They are feeding hot meals to search and rescue workers at the site of a tragic mudslide 70 miles away in Oso.

They’ve been doing it for ten years now, serving food to responders wherever disaster strikes — Hurricane Katrina, the tornado in Joplin, Missouri, and Superstorm Sandy. This time, the tragedy struck in their own back yards.

Other people near Oso, are also doing what they can to help. Boy Scouts organizing a food drive for families left homeless, and a high school that made 1300 lunches for search teams.
