The Forgotten Disaster
The Florida Panhandle is far from returning to normalcy following Hurricane Michael’s devastating strike in October of 2018
Relief organizations around the country are stretched thin trying to provide aid. Federal funding is practically non-existent. Even FEMA has reportedly denied 33,000 claims for aid. Despite funding challenges, Mercy Chefs is committed to helping the people whose lives were torn apart by Hurricane Michael recover. This was one of only four Category 5 hurricanes to ever make landfall in the United States. We cannot ignore the substantial damage left behind
Make A Difference
With Mercy Chefs
This June, Mercy Chefs is going back to Panama City, Florida to help residents recover. Our team will be serving our chef-prepared meals to Bay County school children whose families are still struggling to recover from Hurricane Michael. An estimated 5,550 students are now considered homeless following the storm with no permanent residence in place for their families.
In addition, Mercy Chefs will support volunteer rebuilding crews and mental health teams by providing bunk housing and meals from our central location at Oscar Patterson School. YOU TOO CAN BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION.
