In the wake of unprecedented devastation following the swarth of tornadoes that hit six states in the US over the weekend, Jim Finch, a native of Kentucky, drove miles to get hot food to the residents of one of the worst hit areas.

"I know they don't have no electricity, so that means they don't have no restaurants, no running water," Finch told ABC News correspondent Victor Ordoñez in a now-viral video posted to Twitter.

"I just figured I do what I could do, show up with some food and some water," he added. And that's exactly what he did, with a truck load of food, including breakfast and other "grab-n-go" items, Finch cooked up some hope for neighbors in need.

Finch set up shop in the southwestern city of Mayfield, Kentucky, which saw some of the most tragic devastation from tornadoes. Amid the piles of debris from the storms, Finch offered survivors hot meals and water as rescue and recovery efforts continue.

On Monday (December 13), Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear gave an emotional update on the storms, cleanup efforts, and death toll. During the news conference, Beshear relayed information on aid and resources, while vowing to continue pressing ahead in building back.
