America’s Disaster Relief helps families get back on their feet after disasters like floods or other catastrophic events. Its mobile kitchen travels to affected areas to feed those in need; when not in use during a disaster, the mobile kitchen raises funds by selling tamales and other Mexican dishes at events. The organization is a nationwide nonprofit but each state is self-supporting. Jan France opened the Florida division spring 2011. 

Here are excerpts from their application for LocalShops1's 2014 Best in Biz Awards:

"In a very short time, America’s Disaster Relief has gone from not only having NO Grass or ANY Roots in Florida, to being a recognized effort in the Tampa Bay Area --- often having to turn down invitations for events - all with The Red Mobile Kitchen.  So when disaster strikes the Tampa Bay Area, not only are there supplies to pass out to victims – people will be eating FREE from The Red Mobile Kitchen."

People flag The Red Mobile Kitchen down on the highways, The Red Mobile Kitchen is followed into parking lots – so many people want to support America’s Disaster Relief and eat from the famous The Red Mobile Kitchen."
