Gary LeBlanc Founder and President of Mercy Chefs is our guest today on Let’s Just Talk show. Gary and his team provides professionally prepared, restaurant quality meals for victims, volunteers and first responders in national emergencies and natural disasters. He says “our team is experienced in bringing relief following hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires and national emergencies”.

 

Welcome to Gary LeBlanc’s Mercy Chefs and he wants to thank you for taking a moment to look into the ministry.  When he founded Mercy Chefs in 2006 he never imagined all that God would do through us ministry. At the time, he was broken by what he had witnessed while volunteering in his hometown of New Orleans during the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina. The devastation was so intense and widespread. Lives were completely disrupted. The community was in ruins.

In New Orleans, Gary saw first hand the incredible difference a hot meal could make, but with thirty-five years in the hospitality industry under his belt, he was surprised and outraged by the quality of food being served. Chef Gary knew something more could be done and became inspired to the point of distraction by the idea of serving
high quality food in a disaster zone. Little did he know how far that distraction would lead. To date they have served over 1,100,000 meals – an average of 301 meals every day for ten years! They now have three mobile kitchens and two refrigerated trailers and are able to respond across the United States, as well as, abroad. Please take the opportunity as he did all those years ago; volunteer or partner with them and see what God will do. For more information go www.Mercychefs.com.
