Albany- As Florida recovers from Hurricane Charley, a warehouse in Albany is being stocked with food to help victims of manmade or natural disasters in other countries around the world.

These humanitarian food rations are part of the Department of Defense's Humanitarian Assistance Program that operates at the Albany Marine Base. Part of the warehouse was recently renovated and turned into a climate controlled area to keep the food at 72 degrees.

"Now we're able to start receiving them," said Program Director Bill Lane. "Getting them in, getting them set-up and staged here and ready for any type of mission requirement that may come about."

Soon the warehouse will be stocked with hundreds of thousands of rations the Defense Department is sending to Albany.
