Mercy Chefs Deploys to Cedar Rapids, Iowa Following Deadly Derecho

Mercy Chefs has responded to the widespread power outages caused by the deadly derecho that tore through 700 miles of the Midwest last week. This derecho, with winds of a category two hurricane, has left hundreds of thousands without power for a week and counting! Mercy Chefs has answered the call to deploy and help victims of this disaster. Thank you for your support as we respond to feed body and soul.

We are located at The ROC Center: 1202 Tenth St SE Cedar Rapids, IA. If you’re in need of a hot, chef-prepared meal, please stop by. We are serving lunch from 11am to 1pm and dinner from 5 to 7pm.
