Sunday, in El Dorado, the success of volunteers sits inside the trailer of a big rig truck.
"We were expecting to meet the goal, we were surprised to beat it," says Numana Inc. President Rick McNary.
Each box of food inside the trailer was packaged by people around Kansas and surrounding states.
"People would come for a shift and then recycle back through and sometimes do four of five shifts throughout the day," says McNary.
Five-thousand people over two days.
The turn out meant Numana inc. put together six-hundred fifty thousand meals, beating their original goal by nearly one-hundred thousand.
"It is amazing the amount of people that came out to help," says McNary.
Three trailers were needed to haul the food, those too are donated.
"They'll transport it to New Orleans and it will be flown into Haiti and once it lands into Haiti they will drop this from parachutes," says McNary.
