Welcome to Mercy Chefs

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit Mercy Chef’s redesigned website. We are excited to share with you our mission to feed people body and soul.

Serving victims, first responders and volunteers is at the core of Mercy Chefs’ calling. It’s a calling to show God’s love and compassion by feeding those in need. In 2007, when Mercy Chefs put it’s first mobile kitchen on the road, we had no idea we would be closing in on serving our first millionth meal in seven short years.

As you click through the website, you’ll see the places we’ve been, the faces of those we have served and the incredible Chefs and volunteers that make it possible for us to feed people in their greatest moment of need.
