WASHINTON, Ill.-- More than 70 meals are prepped and ready to give out to tornado victims.

The owner of "Prep.Freeze.Cook" decided to turn her meal prep parties into a benefit for tornado victims.

Wendi Langstaff does all the shopping, cutting and organizing for meals...all the "prep" work.

Then anyone who wants to buy the meals comes in and puts all the ingredients into a freezer bag.

Each person takes home ten meals that will feed at least five people.

For every ten meals bought Wendi is donating one meal to a tornado victim.

"We just did this because when the tornado first hit we were operating out of our house. So we weren't allowed to do anything to help the tornado victims and we have numerous friends and family who lost everything," Langstaff said. "And really at the time, there wasn't really a need for a prepped meal, there was more of a need of where are we moving too. And now that people are settling in, we feel it's finally a time that we can give back."

The meals for those effected by the November tornadoes will be given out on Monday.
