Mercy Chefs Continue to Serve up Meals in the Panhandle

News

Mercy Chefs were first introduced to our community shortly after Hurricane Michael. 

Although the storm has passed, the need for a hot meal, in some cases, is still there.

Mercy Chefs are still in town helping serve up delicious food to students on spring break who might not have access to food during this time. 

So far, they’ve served 25,000 meals during the break, 100,000 meals locally, and just a few days ago, reached 2 million meals served across the nation. 

They plan to be here throughout the rest of the week and say they’re still here, ready to help anyone in need. 

We’re all very surprised at how much need is still here. As a seasoned person in disaster relief, I’m grieved by what I see going on here in Florida and how much need there still is, said Managing Chef, Lisa Saylor

Although they’ll be leaving at the end of the week, Saylor said they’ll be back in the Panhandle before you know it.
