ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- It's been several weeks since Hurricane Harvey slammed the Texas coast, and people there are still recovering from the powerful storm. One Colorado man/future Albuquerque business owner is still stepping up to help.


David Montoya owns Dickey's Barbecue in La Junta, Colorado. With the help of the American Red Cross and other volunteers, Montoya has been able to serve 100,000 meals to those impacted by Harvey.

"So many times when it's not in the news anymore, we think it's not happening anymore, that's not true," Montoya said. "These people are going to be hurting for years."

Montoya and others started a nonprofit called Barbecue Masters for Disasters. He said he will keep helping victims until they don't need him anymore. The nonprofit also has its sights on Florida and Puerto Rico, two areas recently impacted by hurricanes.
