Bucky Glenn fired up the grill for 500 pounds of chicken and his fellow firefighters slid the beans into place. Volunteers chopped 175 pounds of sausage and scooped potato salad as an assembly line formed to build boxes of hot meals headed from the fire station to Harvey's flooding victims.

Volunteer Tameka Mills said, "They really are public servants-- what the task is, they are up to the challenge and they're going to take care of the community."

Less than two weeks ago, these same firefighters rescued dozens of people from the rising waters. On their days off, they went back and saw a community still suffering.

"It's heartbreaking seeing what these people have lost. I can speak for myself and them. You don't have a lot of personal belongings in life and something like this comes in and takes every bit of it away from you," said Glenn.

So Glenn and his team are coming to the rescue again, delivering about 800 boxes to the same people they pulled from the water. A lot of them have gone home and found nothing worth saving and they hadn't had hot food in days.

The food is a gift from above and from the men in uniform with a special calling and a gift for barbecue.
