Sunday Afternoon from Eastern Kentucky
The devastation here in eastern Kentucky is shocking. I just filed a brief video report for you:
Mercy Chefs served our first meals to flood victims last night and we're getting ready to serve dinner -- our second meal of the day. The need here is great. I'm gearing up to provide two hot meals a day, with deliveries to the hardest hit communities across eastern Kentucky, for as long as there is need.
I'm reaching out to every Mercy Chefs friend and asking for your help right now as we meet this urgent need here in eastern Kentucky. Will you partner with Mercy Chefs to provide hot meals to flood victims, volunteers and emergency workers? Go here to make your tax-deductible gift:
The damage here is almost beyond what you can imagine. The floodwaters came up overnight, hitting entire communities while they were sleeping. More rain has been forecasted for today and everyone here is holding their breath.
Mercy Chefs is here to provide help and hope in the form of hot, chef-quality meals. But we need your help! Every meal we serve is sponsored by friends like you. Perhaps you can help sponsor 10, 20, 50 or even 100 meals or more. Go here to sponsor meals for flood victims, and thanks in advance for your help.

P.S. I was working with our team last night to serve our first meals -- smoked meats with peppers and onions, roasted rosemary potatoes, cornbread, chopped green salad, and a freshly baked cookie. This is the heart of our mission -- serve excellent, chef-quality meals to those who have been hit by disaster. Please help and please pray for the people of Kentucky.
