Rating: 5 stars

There is no other organization that provides for a community during disaster like Mercy Chefs. As a volunteer (there are NO salaries, everyone is a volunteer) I have been impressed by the compassion Mercy Chefs has for the community they set up to serve in. Mercy Chefs always stays in the back ground and prefers the media attention be placed on the local churches and other local charities. Mercy Chefs has one agenda - and that is "Just go feed people".

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them enough funds to advertise how they affect the communities they serve.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

I volunteered with Mercy Chefs on Staten Island in regards to the Sandy Hurricane disaster. They arrived with a mobile kitchen to prep and serve enough food for 3500 hungry people over two days. There skills, passion and care to prepare quality food for these disaster victims was over the top. I have worked with many nonprofits and I have to say this was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. Very impressive organization from the top down. Very organized and extremely detailed in every little thing. They didn't turn anyone away - they stayed until the food ran out. Very impressive.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage them to explore setting up outreach programs in local communities across America and abroad - when not serving in disaster zones.

Mercy Chefs is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing hot meals to victims and volunteers in disaster and other desperate situations. Our simple mission to "just feed people" is only possible through the generous support of friends like you.
