As businesses, government agencies, and individuals alike band together to help provide support to the Panama City, Florida area after the devastation of Hurricane Michael, Waffle House has stepped up to help get free, tasty meals to relief workers and local residents in need.

"The food truck has rolled into Panama City. We are giving out free food curbside at 631 W 15th St. Come on by until 6 pm!" the Georgia-based restaurant chain announced on social media today, alongside the hashtag, "#ScatteredSmotheredandRecover." In the picture, you can see firsthand the havoc wreaked by the Category 4-hurricane, as all the letters but the "S" in the store sign were blown out, rendering the scene like a dark world version of Wheel of Fortune.

Of course, this is only one small gesture of the beloved Southern eatery, which is known to stay open and slash prices during hurricanes to help locals. If you'd like to help those affected by Hurricane Michael, you can donate directly to the Florida Disaster Fund here.

If you or someone you know is searching for a loved one in the Florida panhandle, you can report it on the Florida National Guard website here
