This week marks the 16th anniversary of Mercy Chefs. I never could have imagined all that we'd see and do over serving over 20 million meals, and yet I know we're just getting started!
Our team put together a very short video on how Mercy Chefs started:
With so many new friends partnering with Mercy Chefs in recent months, I'm sure some have never heard this story. It began when my hometown of New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina and I knew I had to respond. So I went to New Orleans and the experience changed my life.
+ + We're feeding people this week...
Sixteen years later, Mercy Chefs is still pursuing our mission to "just go feed people" who are in the midst of natural and man-made disasters. As you know, we've been helping those suffering in Ukraine for over three months. Our deliveries of food and supplies are ongoing. Today, another vehicle will load up and head across the border to help families who are struggling in the midst of that war.
Every meal we provide depends on the generous partnership of friends like you! Will you help us feed Ukraine war victims today while we continue other vital efforts? Go here to make your tax-deductible gift, and thank you so much for your prayers and support over these 16 years.
Note: the above video short was taken from a longer 15th anniversary video that tells more of the story:
