The volunteers were manually assigned to six (6) groups. Each of the six (6) groups was assigned a 50-seater bus with a specific route. The number of meals and beverages were estimated for that specific route and loaded unto the bus. The groups stopped at strategic locations and the volunteers dispersed to distribute the meals and beverages to the homeless. In the event that meals were finished prematurely, volunteers at the dispatch station would be discharged with additional supplies to replenish the reserves of that group.
