Napa, CA- After a magnitude 6.0 earthquake rattled Northern California early Sunday, The Salvation Army has deployed multiple canteens (mobile feeding units) to the Napa and Vallejo areas.

A Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) team was sent to the evacuation centre in Napa (Crosswalk Community Church) and is prepared to serve more than 100 dinner meals to displaced residents and first responders. Two other canteens are stationed in other parts of Napa to also serve meals.

Another crew is providing meal service in Vallejo. An emergency canteen is currently at Fire Station 21 where nearly 200 meals were delivered to emergency personnel at that site early this morning. Earlier today, that same team provided food and beverage for the patients and staff at St. Helena Hospital, which, at one point, was without water.

The Salvation Army will continue to assess the ongoing needs and how to best assist residents and first responders throughout the entire response process.
