Local Churches

Local churches and Christian organizations become the hub for our emergency deployments and community outreaches. We work in partnership with these organizations to maximize the long term impact of our work and to highlight their existing ministries as a beacon of hope for the community.


Mobile Kitchens

Mercy Chefs sets up our mobile kitchen, refrigerated trailer and team of professional chefs on site to plan, prepare and serve restaurant quality meals for the community members in need. Our experience and mass service capabilities increase the work able to be accomplished by our local partners.

Local Volunteers

Local volunteers come alongside Mercy Chefs and our local ministry partners to help meet the need within their own community. Their service creates a lasting connection between the volunteers, those we serve and our local partners. This connection strengthens the bond within the community and helps volunteers get plugged in to long-term ministries.
