Albany- The Albany Salvation Army has a new state-of-the-art mobile disaster canteen. Prescription drug maker Merck and Company donated $30,000 toward the kitchen on wheels.

In return, its employees enjoyed the first meal served from the canteen -- ice cream sundaes.

"This is very important to the Salvation Army, especially here in the Albany area with the flint River there we're always in danger of a flood. It could happen any time, and this canteen is capable of serving over 2,000 hot meals a day to people whose homes are out of electricity," says Salvation Army Major James Amburgey

The canteen has its own generator and lots of amenities. It's equipped with a six burner stove, deep fryer, and 36-inch grill.
